Book Description

Handwritten letters of historically significant personalities have always been highly sought-after collectors’ items. This passion, which originates in Ancient Greek and Roman periods has gained wide appeal in the 16th century, and continues to our age. In addition to their status as historical documents due to their subject matters, handwritten letters also establish an emotional connection with these eminent personalities.

This book, Your Excellency’s Obedient Servant, features assiduously selected samples from the Ömer M. Koç Collection. These letters dated between 1795 and 1922 are presented in chronological order, and were written in Latin script by a number of prominent and colourful figures including Grand Vizier Mustafa Reşid Pasha, Abdülhamid Efendi ─ then still a prince, Queen Victoria, Lord Kitchener, Pierre Loti, and Florence Nightingale.
