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:

Ovaçevirme →Lynch 1901-2: 256 (Chevermeh)

Ovaçevirme = the Turkish modern name.

Lynch 1901 = author + year of publication of the travel report in which this name can be found. If the text is blue, it is linked to a title description.

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.

(Chevermeh) the name version used by the author

(→ANT) links to a list of geographical annotations for this title.

It is much appreciated if you report broken links
