A remarkable nineteenth-century account of Constantinople – which begins with a dazzling description of the city gradually appearing through the fog as the author’s ship approaches through the harbour – Edmondo de Amicis’s narrative expertly combines personal anecdote, breathtaking visual observation and entertaining historical information.

An invaluable record of Constantinople as it used to be – a fascinating crossroads between Eastern and Western civilization and one of the most cosmopolitan cities of its time – as well as a vivid example of a European tourist’s reaction to it – part delight, part incomprehension – this book will provide an enriching read for lovers of history or those planning to visit Istanbul themselves.


________



'I had De Amicis’s text ready when I came to Istanbul. For he had seen what I cannot see today.' Umberto Eco

'A long work like de Amicis' is more than an average guide: it is a cinematographic view of late 19th century Istanbul.' Time Out Istanbul

'Stephen Parkin’s translation is assured and lively, catching well the spirit of the original... Edmondo De Amicis’s book conjures up the eternal harem of Western imaginings, of alluring Oriental déshabille and sensual decadence behind closed doors.'TLS
