Istanbul : The Imperial City, Paperback Book


Istanbul's history is a catalogue of change, not least of name, yet it has managed to retain its own unique identity.

John Freely captures the flavour of daily life as well as court ceremonial and intrigue.

The book also includes a comprehensive gazetteer of all major monuments and museums.

An in-depth study of this legendary city through its many different ages from its earliest foundation to the present day - the perfect traveller's companion and guide.
