Book Description

This case study of the history of the first Ottoman capital, Bursa, as reflected in travel acoounts of the fourteenth into the early twentieth centuries, represents a ground-breaking demonstration of the manner in which this genre may best be utilised by the historian.

Based on the analysis of 180 accounts by foreign and Ottoman visitors to the city, the author weighs their information against that contained in surviving Ottoman documents and the extant secondary literature, in the process setting forth a new research approach for Ottoman urban studies.
