About This Item

Like new except for some slight age-darkening, some slight tanning of spine and rear top edge of dust jacket and a very little wrinkling at top of dust jacket. No damage to volume itself; a coupe of light pencil marks.

Victor Louis Ménage (1920 – 2015) was a British historian, Turkologist, specialist in the early Ottoman Empire, holder of the Chair of Turkish in the University of London, and an editor of the Encyclopedia of Islam. His important monograph is one of the best studies of the evolution and origins of some of the material in Mevlânâ Mehmed Neshri's important history of the Ottoman Empire.

Neshri (also Neşri) (1450 - 1520) was a relatively obscure figure apart from his role as an early Ottoman historian. His work has provided an important source for the history of the Ottomans of the time, and was drawn from a number of sources and traditions, as well as his personal experiences of the death of Mehmed ll and the subsequent Janissary riots of 1481 .Ménage identifies many of the source documents and shows how Neshri blended and adapted st least two traditions of Ottoman historiography.
