Folio (580 x 440 mm). Tinted lithographed pictorial title and 39 plates, each titled in German, French, English and Greek, and with border of trophies.

FIRST EDITION of these rare tinted lithographs charting the Greek War of Independence of 1821-1832. The work is not in Blackmer, and estimates of the date of publication vary. In 1833 von Hess traveled at King Ludwig's request to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where he produced a series of forty sketches that were placed in the Pinakothek in Munich. According to ABPC, only one other complete copy has sold at auction in the past 40 years.
