Originally published in 1895. PREFACE: In issuing this guide to Constantinpole let me say at once that it is designed rather for the use of the ordinary sight-seer than of the specialised student. My aim has been to avoid confusing the reader with too great fullness of historical, topographical, or technical details ; but rather to fix his attention on salient points, and to convey to him as succinctly as possible such information as is most likely to be of use to one who, without much previous study, wishes to devote a limited time as pleasantly and profitably as may be to the exploration of the City and its Environs....... This early works is a fascinating guide and will appeal greatly to any traveller. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality,modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
