Survey of Istanbul from 1455

Yaman Dalaney has shared with us the publication of the Ottoman survey of Constantinople from only two years after the conquest, and thus is likely to be of great interest to those studying the topography of late Byzantine and early Ottoman Constantinople. You can find the publication here: http://www.eren.com.tr/kitap/the-survey-of-istanbul-1455-selected-works-of-halil-inalcik-4-p616002.html If anyone else comes across more obscure publications such as this also please feel free to share it with the Oxford Byzantine List.
