First English translations of Pierre Loti’s ‘Suprêmes Visions d’Orient’ and ‘Constantinople. Fin de siecle’.

Pierre Loti (1850-1923) was born Louis-Marie-Julien Viaud into a Protestant family in Rochefort in Saintonge, South-West France (now Charente Maritime). He was an officer of the French Navy and a prolific author of considerable note in 19th-/early-20th-century France, publishing many novels and numerous accounts of his travels around the world. He was a member of the French Academy.

Apart from his literary talents, Loti was a pioneer photographer and this translation is greatly enhanced by the reproduction of some of the photographs he took at the time.

Volume includes a number historic photos taken by Pierre Loti and 2 maps.
