Description

An attractive illustrated Ottoman entertaining popular tale on Şabur Çelebi, set in Baghdad and mixing romance and adventures in the style of The One Thousand and One Night, was printed for the first time in 1877 by the Bulaq Press, the first press in Egypt, in Ottoman script. The text was accompanied with 19 full page lithographed illustrations. The 1925 Istanbul edition copies the original illustrations.
