This is a key work on Constantinople from an age when it was synonymous with exotic culture & mystery, a constant source of fascination to Western observers as its location marked the gateway to both East & West. The superb engravings by THOMAS ALLOM give a clear insight into the City, its churches, the people and the grandeur of the wider surroundings.
