Getty Research Institute's copies of N 4 and N 6 lack the distribution statements cited in Kayser, p. 46 ("Werden verkaufft in Hamburg in guelden A.B.C." and "Werden verkaufft bey der Boerse in guelden A.B.C."). Getty Research Institute's copy of N 18 has distribution statement on verso, not noted in Kayser: Zubeommen [i.e. Zu bekommen] im Gülden A.B.C. Kayser cites first word of title of N 2 as: Tuerckis [i.e. Türckis]; Getty Research Intstitute's copy of N 2 has: Türck.
Most issues lack imprint. Kayser identifies printer/publisher ("Drucker-Verleger") as Thomas von Wiering.
Later issued as part of a collected work: Der Türckische Schau-Platz eröfnet und fürgestelt in sehr vielen nach dem Leben gezeichneten Figuren. Hamburg : Thomas von Wiering, 1685.
The Lorichs illustrations (with signatures and dates removed) repeat 123 of 128 woodcuts previously issued with different set titles in Hamburg in 1626 and 1646. See Fischer, v. 3, p. 7-11, and the relevant catalog entries in same.
For a discussion of E. W. Happel's use of texts by M. Lorichs in the descriptions of the illustrations, see Fischer, v. 3, p. 18-20 and relevant catalog entries in same. According to Kayser the reports on ongoing events of the war were taken from T. von Wiering's Relations-Courier. For a discussion of T. von Wiering's newspapers and his collaboration with Happel, see Prange.
All illustrations by Melchior Lorichs except those for N 39, 65, 67-68, 107-108, 110, 132-133. The Lorichs illustrations were printed from woodblocks fabricated 1565-1583. See Fischer, v. 3, 282-286. Woodcuts for N 132 and 133 signed: H. v. W.; Kayser identifies the artist as H. von Wiering. Woodcuts for N 107-108 and 110, all unsigned, are by L. Danet according to Kayser. Kayser states woodcuts for N 39, 65, and 67, 80 are by unknown artists but Fischer counts the woodcut for N 80 among those by Lorichs. Kayser states woodcut for N 68 is by Lorichs; according to Fischer it is not.
Editor: Eberhard Werner Happel.
Alternative title, appearing on first issue only, supplied from facsimile of a copy of [N 1] held by the Royal Library, Copenhagen, in Fischer, v. 3, p. 10.
