Shows and describes the history of Istanbul palaces, some of which date back to the fifteenth century.

From Booklist:

Travel books all urge the tourist in Istanbul to take a ferry ride up the Bosporus, the waterway dividing the European and Asian parts of the city. This beautiful book not only helps in identifying the palaces and villas that line the water but takes us inside them. Some well-known public buildings, such as Topkapi and the Dolmabahce Palace, are shown, but most interesting are the interiors of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century wooden villas that were originally built as summer getaways, often by Greeks, Russians, or Egyptians. Many of them have been lost to fire or development in recent years, but some are now restored and serve as year-round homes. The text ties the history of upper-class domestic architecture to what was going on in the larger Ottoman society. As European influences became more dominant in the waning years of the empire, so too did European styles of architecture and interior decoration. The more than 200 color photographs will delight armchair travelers and those interested in historic architecture. Sandy Whiteley
