Description

A very rare first and only issued number of the selling catalogue, printed in the first years of the 20th century in Istanbul in Ottoman language, lists 241 various sorts of mostly tulips, hyacinths and daffodils.

The list was assembled by Afendoulis and Kothalis, possibly merchants of Greek origins in Istanbul.

The catalogue offers a valuable insight on the vivid trade of decorative plants in the early 20th century in

We could not find any examples of the catalogue on Worldcat nor in the Turkish libraries.
