Aprašymas

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

When I first knew it, in 1856, it was no longer the city of Suleiman the Magnificent, or of Mahmoud II, the great refor
