About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Narrative of a ten years' residence at Tripoli in Africa: from the original correspondence in the possession of the family of the late Richard Tully, esq. by [TULLY, Richard].

Description:

With color frontispiece, 4 additional color plates and folding map. Three quarters red calf with red marbled boards, gilt detailing and title on spine. With stamp of Surry Institution in several places. A fine copy. First edition of this rare work that recalls the daily life, colorful anecdotes and dramatic events surrounding the royal family of Tripoli. Allegedly based on the letters of Richard Tully's sister, who enjoyed a privileged position within the household, the preface reveals itself as both an intimate portrait as well as something of an exposé; it warns the reader that the text contains "such scenes and events, such sketches of human weakness and vice, the effects of ambition, avarice, envy, and intrigue, as will scarcely appear credible in the estimation of an European." As one of the Barbary States on the north coast of Africa, Tripoli was as often romanticized as it was demonized, a dynamic that plays out in both the text and images of this volume. Tripoli was very much 'in the news' at the time of its publication - the Second Barbary War with the United States had just finished in 1815, and Great Britain's ongoing troubles with in the area certainly added to the book's mystique and popularity. Lord Byron even acknowledged his debt to Tully's work, lifting a few descriptions for use in his poem Don Juan.Richard Tully was British Consul in Tripoli from 1783-1793. Bookseller Inventory #
