In 1828, Scottish travel writer Charles MacFarlane spent 16 months in Constantinople studying the people, customs, and culture of the Turkish provinces. He developed a strong understanding of the Turkish military which allowed to him to write one of the best accounts on the Ottoman Empire from the first half of the 19th-century. ‘Constantinople in 1828’ also contains thorough descriptions of the city of Constantinople as well as Turkey and Smyrna.

 

And while the textual content of this first edition is noteworthy, another fascinating attribute of this work is the highly desirable colored illustrations of the Sultan, Constantinople troops, costumes, and the Mosque.
