He describes the miseries of Christian slaves in the Ottoman Empire, as well as Turkish ceremonies, traditions, religion, agriculture, etc. It includes a Turkish-French vocabulary.The second part is mentioned on the title-page of the first part, but has its own title-page, pagination and signatures, so that it could also be sold separately.
