Folio (532 x 360mm.), 12 aquatint plates by Robert Havell and son after Cartwright, all coloured by hand and mounted, contemporary red half morocco, lacking title-page, one plate (Ali Pacha) with imprint pasted onto both recto and verso (and slightly smaller in size), binding rubbed
Very rare. This work was not present in the Atabey or Blackmer collections, and there is only one copy recorded at auction on ABPC in the last 35 years - a copy in these rooms in 1988.
Cartwright (1789-1829), was Paymaster General of the British forces in Corfu from 1816-1820 and a noted marine artist. His long stay in the Ionian Islands and frequent visits to Greece gave him the opportunity to produce a large number of paintings. In addition to this work he also illustrated Views in the Ionian Islands, 1821, an equally rare work. The plate of Ali Pacha is described as "Drawn by J. Cartwright Esq. from life at Bucinto, 1819" (see illustration on upper cover).
