" Just the book for which there is really a definite demand, and to supply it in a way that in scholarly merit, comprehensiveness of range, charm of narration, and splendor of pictorial embellish ment may readily be accepted as final. The qualifications of Professor Grosvenor for the great task he has undertaken and carried to so successful a conclusion are obvious." --Beacon. " Will prove of double use in the world of letters. For those who read at home of far-away cities this exhaustive and admirable work will open a mine of pleasure and information, enabling them to find in fancy the old city almost from its early mythological beginnings down to the present hour." Transcript. "An important and valuable work on this famous city. * * * Constantinople is at present a subject of eager European interest and discussion, owing to the unsettled state of affairs between the Porte and the great Powers, the constant reports of grave insurrections, and the graver fears of a possible and momentous war. A description of the city and its surroundings has, therefore, a timely interest far beyond the ordinary." -Churchman. " It is a book for all who have an interest in the world outside their own door, for the unlearned and the learned, for the traveller and for him who stays at home."- -Mail and Express. " The book is a monument of scholarly, conscientious work, and should have a place in every well-equipped library the country through."-ChristianWork. "There could hardly be a more propitious time than j t now for the appearance of the great work 'Constantinople.' It is no exaggeration to say that it is the most important popular treatise on Constantinople from the historical and archaeological point of view that has yet appeared in English, and coming as it does at a time when the fate of the capital of the East is hanging in the balance, it can hardly fail of being one of the books of the year. "An immense collection of the choicest photographs was gathered for the enrichment of its pages, so that after finishing the book the reader has almost the sensation of having himself visited the places described." -Springfield Republican.
