8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries the Middle East attracted enterprising traders and adventurous travelers throughout the world to its distant lands. European artists - whether professional painters accompanying an expedition or amateur watercolorists on holiday - responded to these exotic surroundings and changing conditions, preserving the Middle Eastern legacy in works that today offer a glimpse into this now-lost world. Voyages and Visions: Nineteenth-Century European Images of the Middle East from the Victoria and Albert Museum surveys the variety of artists' encounters with these distant lands and exotic cultures through the presentation of eighty-two watercolors and drawings selected from the extensive Seafight Collection in London. Complementing these exciting works oil paper are fascinating essays written by experts in Middle Eastern studies. Their research elucidates the mutual exchange of ideas and influences between East and West, charts the course of European travel throughout the region, and examines the artists and their varied responses to the wonders they encountered

Levni and the Surname : the story of an eighteenth-century Ottoman festival by Esin Atıl( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Levni's pictorial narrative of the Surname-i Vehbi, poet Vehbi's account of a festival organized in 1720 to commemorate the circumcision of four sons of Sultan Ahmed III, is undoubtedly one of the masterpieces of Ottoman art and possibly the last great example of illustrated Islamic manuscript. Preserved in the Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul, the work is illustrated with 137 paintings that recreate the personages, settings, and events of an extraordinarily lively and enchanting age known as the Tulip Period. -- Printed in color with gold and silver, Levni and the Surname is a sumptuous facsimile edition that reproduces each illustration in the format of the original manuscript: an Islamic codex which reads from back to front, or right to left. The book also introduces the historical and cultural setting of the age, analyzes the tradition of festivals and festival books within the Ottoman world, discusses the artist's methodology in representing the festival of 1720, and concludes with a listingof the historic groups and individuals participating in the event."
