Description

Two detailed manuscript broadsides in Ottoman language represent the structure of the new Soviet government, as formed on July 10th, 1918.

The Ottoman Empire and Russia nourished for centuries a love-hate relationship, which resulted in several wars and complex cultural and diplomatic relations. The countries were heavily connected through the trade and religion, as the large Christian population of the Ottoman Empire was centralized on the Russian Orthodox church, and the Islamic inhabitants of Russian Near East regions on the Ottoman territories.

The collapse of the old Russian system after the revolution was therefore closely followed by the Ottomans, themselves on the verge of losing large parts of its territory and becoming the Republic of Turkey.
