First collected edition of several accounts of the Turks by the rector of the Frankfurt gymnasium, Philipp Lonicer. Vivid woodcut illustrations by the Swiss printmaker Jost Amman add visual value to the book. The first volume contains sections by Philipp Lonicer on the origins and history of Turks. It provides information on Ottoman history by allocating a chapter for each sultan up to the reign of Selim II (d.1574). It devotes pages to the state and military organization as well as daily life in the Ottoman Empire and Islam as the religion of Turks. This volume also includes the first Latin edition of Menavino's chronicle on the traditions and daily life of Turks, which was first published in Italian in 1548 at Florence and Venice. Amongst other works this edition also contains Aventinus's report on the Turks. Volume 2 consists of eight reports on military events. One is by Filippo Buonaccorsi on Vladislav III, the King of Poland and Hungary, who died fighting at the Battle of Varna in 1444 in an unsuccessful effort to stop the Ottoman advance in the Balkans; a letter addressed to the Pope by Leonard of Chios, the Latin Archbishop of Mytilene, who witnessed the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople by Mehmed II in 1453; and one by Melchior Soiter, which provides an account of the struggle between Suleiman the Magnificent and King Ferdinand I of Austria over Hungary. Volume 3 contains Marin Barleti's 'Life of Scanderbeg'. A priest in the city of Shkodra, Barleti witnessed the Ottoman siege of the city led by Mehmed II in 1478 and gives an account of the resistance led by Scanderbeg. This volume also includes Alexander Gwagnin's 'Descriptio'. Its two different versions were brought out by Albin in 1581.
