CUTTANCE, H. [An early English prospect of Constantinople]
The Prospect of the Grand Serraglio, or Imperial Palace of Constantinople, as it appears from Galata. Oxford: The Theatre, 1687. Two sheets conjoined, total 310 x 820mm. Binding folds flattened, with a few small repairs.
A scarce prospect of Constantinople from across the Golden Horn, with a twelve-point key . It was published in 'The Present State of the Islands In The Archipelago, (Or Arches) Sea of Constantinople, and Gulph of Smyrna; With the Islands of Candia, and Rhodes' by Bernard Randolph. Drawn by 'H. Cuttance Ju.r', it is significantly different from other prospects on period, for example Merian, suggesting Cuttance did indeed visit the city. Randolph, a merchant who lived in Massachusetts, Smyrna and Greece, presented an account of the Ottoman Empire during the Sixth War with the Venetians (1684-99). The fact that both the title and key are replicated in Italian suggests he saw a market for his book in Venice. The prospect was engraved by David Loggan, better known for his elevations of the buildings of the universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
