According to an often-reprinted story, Ali Mustapha was a Turk who, travelling economically on a barge in France, was sleeping when his fellow passengers set fire to his beard. Upon awaking (as the text and image here recount), the enraged Ali Mustapha killed several people on board the barge and 'could not be stop'd till he was shot with a Pistol, of which wounds he died at Sens three Days after'.

Lithograph. Printed area 295 x 250mm, 11½ x 9¾". Publisher's blind stamp under title. Cut.
Head and shoulders portrait of Ali Pasha (1740-1822), the Ottoman Albanian ruler, surnamed Aslan, 'the Lion', or the 'Lion of Yannina', who fought for independence from the Ottoman Empire. His cruelty has become legendary. Byron visited Ali's court in Ioánnina in 1809 and wrote to his mother: 'His Highness is a remorseless tyrant, guilty of the most horrible cruelties, very brave, so good a general that they call him the Mahometan Buonaparte ... but as barbarous as he is successful, roasting rebels, etc, etc.'. Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse (1784-1844) appears to have painted this portrait after Ali's death.

An important figure in the Ottoman court was the Chief Black Eunuch (Kizlar Agasi or Dar al-Saada Agasi).

Hand coloured engraving, sheet 325 x 435mm. Trimmed to plate and laid to card.
Vue d'optique in Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire between 1453 and 1922. It was officially renamed to its modern Turkish name Istanbul in 1930, as part of Atatürk's national reforms. Engraved and published in Augsburg, Germany, by Georg Balthasar Probst. Inscribed '219' upper right, ink annotations to upper part of and above plate. Vue D’Optique prints known as the perspective view, intended for use in an optical diagonal machine, were highly popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Used with a special viewer called “optical machines,” “optiques,” or 'zograscopes' these prints were a form of entertainment. Published in Paris, Augsburg, London, etc., ca. 1750-1800, the prints were exhibited by travelling showmen in the streets throughout Europe and also were collected by those in the professional and upper classes who had the optical machines at home. Another attribute of these prints is their bright, often crude hand colouring, applied boldly so to show the tints when viewed through the lens. The prints usually have a series of colours–blue, pink and yellow are common–crossing in bands from side to side, with bright highlights often including red. These cheerful and colourful images, with their fascinating history and peculiar appearance, make for unusual and appealing eighteenth-century prints.

He was subsequently appointed keeper of the pictures and antiquary to his majesty. He was one of the original members of the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1765, and became their treasurer.
