How does it work ?

On this page you will find direct links to digitalized travel books for the listed places, categorized per modern Turkish district (ilçe)

by example:

256 = the page number. If the number is blue it links to a page in one of the digital book repositories (, or, jstor) or to a reproduction of the text on this website with geographical annotations.
