By Cornucopia Connoisseur | December 27, 2022

Reviewed in the next issue of Cornucopia by William Kynan-Wilson is a facsimile of an extraordinary Turkish book of manners, Scenes from the 16th CenturyOttoman Empire I: Facsimile of Türkische Manierenbuch from Kassel University Library, edited by Ömer Erdem and Mehmet Tütüncü (SOTA Publications, €200). 

The pages are also available online here, but without the valuable commentary – the original captions are in defiantly difficult to read Old German.
