First edition, first issue, (the Discours Préliminaireconcluding on the fourth line of page xvi.) of Choiseul-Gouffier's magnificent Voyage pittoresque de la Grèce .
Based on Choiseul Gouffier´s own account of his travel in 1776 as member of Marquis de Chabert´s expedition for mapping the Eastern Mediterranean. First Volume only, complete in itself, it would later be reissued with a second volume in two parts published in 1809 and 1822.
From Toulon, the French frigate Atalante sailed to Sardinia, Malta and Sicily, and put in at the port of Coroni. Then followed the islands of Cimolos, Melos, Siphnos, Sicinos, Ios, Santorini, Naxos, Tenos, Syros, Delos, Paros, Antiparos, Scyros, Lemnos, Lesbos, Chios, Samos, Patmos, Cos, Rhodes and Symi. The party then crossed over to Çesme opposite Chios, and Macre (pres. Fethiye), continuing their tour in western Asia Minor, visiting Telmessos, Mylassa, Stratonike, Bodrum-Halicarnassus, Iassos, Heraclea by Latmus, Didyma, Priene, Miletus, Ephesus, Teos and Smyrna.

The work was a considerable success and led to Choiseul- Gouffier's rise in cultural and political France culminating in 1784, when Choiseul-Gouffier was elected a member of the Académie Française and was appointed Ambassador of France to the Sublime Porte by Louis XVI, where he would remain until removed by the French revolutionary government in 1792 and went into exile in Russia where he would become director of the Academy of Arts and Imperial Library for Catherine the Great
Whilst ambassador to the Sublime Porte he used the opportunity to further his archeological and other researches with the aid of amongst others Louis François Cassas, J B Le Chevalier and Anse de Villoison.
Eventually returning to France from exile in 1802 he began work on the second, supplementary, volume which was published in two parts, the first in 1809, and the "final biographical livraison was published posthumously" in 1822.
