Published
Constantinople: J. Missiri. [1855].
Description
Oblong folio. Two spectacular elevated hand-tinted lithograph panoramas (approx. 44 x 224cm) of the Bosphorus, printed by Jacomme et Cie, Paris, each panorama consists of 4 sheets, modern green half calf gilt, marbled boards, label to upper cover. These two panoramas were jointly issued, originally in a single printed wrapper bearing the title "Panorama du Bosphore de la Mer Noire jusqu’à la Mer de Marmara". On this, J. Missirié was recorded as the original publisher in collaboration with Schranz. However, on all 8 conjoined plates, the imprint of J. Missirié appears to have been added to the lower right corner, so may indicate his own later issue, although both Blackmer and Atabey are only aware of one issue.
