Originally published in 1920 on the eve of the Turkish Peace Treaty at the conclusion of WWI, this book surveys the history and character of the people of Turkey through selected extracts from sixteenth- and seventeenth-century travelogues made by Europeans of various social classes and professions. These documents record life, war, government, music and love in the Golden Age of the Ottoman Empire from a Christian European perspective. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of Turkey and of Turkish interactions with Europeans.
