Catalogue Note

rare. Boucicault fought in several campaigns against the Turks and was taken prisoner at the battle of Nicopolis. In 1398 he was sent to Constantinople to help in the defence of the city against the Turks. The work contains a number of chapters relating to the King of Cyprus. The present edition was the first to be edited, by Theodore Godefroy, from Boucicault's manuscript.

There are two issues of this edition, distinguished by the form of Pacard's device on the title: in one Abraham faces left (as here and in Atabey), in the other he faces right.
