Medals and orders are generally considered as significant objects of art and they are an important part of a nation's heritage throughout its history. Furthermore, they symbolize the sovereignty of that nation and honor those who earned them. Ottoman medals and orders symbolize the recent 250 year history and art of the Empire. They are objects of art, symbols of honor and numismatic materials at the same time. The Ottoman Empire ruled a large area for hundreds of years and archival records show that during this time, it issued medals and orders not only to its own people but also to foreign nationals. Since the Empire left its mark on these civilizations over the years, its medals and orders should be of great interest to the people who lived under Ottoman rule during this period. This book is the result of a careful and meticulous 15-year research on Ottoman medals and orders and it is the first detailed publication on the subject. Original binding. Dust wrapper.
