Description

During the Turkish War of Independence Konya was a major military and air base, as well as an important location on the Baghdad railroad. During the brief Italian occupation of the city in 1920 the printing house Ögut Matbaası was burned down and later reopened.

The book was translated by a cavalry captain Atıf. Two more common editions were printed in Istanbul in 1918 and 1922. We could not find any institutional examples nor mentioning in the literature.
