Book Description Temple University, Philadalphia, PA, 1970. Cloth - Hardcover. Condition: Near FINE. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. This book is not about Turks or spies. The author, Giovanni Marana, was an Italian living in France in the 17th century. From the jacket flap: "He wrote in the character of a Turk visiting Paris, and these fictional letters back to his friends describe what he saw and did. Marana was probably the fist writer to use the device of a series of letters written by a visitor to a foreign country in order to comment satirically on contemporary politics, culture, religiion, manners and philosophy.He is an acute observer of the courts of Louis XIII and XIV, and nothing spared his satirical pen -- the hypocrisies of the Jesuits, the disastrous politics and wars of the 17th century, the crude manners and superstitions of the Europeans, and the seamy side of France.Immensely popular throughout the 18th century, Letters Writ by a Turkish Spy has never been reprinted in any form since. In this edition, Arthur J. Weitzman has selected the best of the original 8 volume collection of letters, and has provided a critical introduction and notes." Blue hardcover with decorative dustjacket, 233 pages, with bibliography. The book is in excellent condition. The dustjacket has some scuffs but no tears. Front flyleaf has names of two previous owners. Seller Inventory # 006369
