Drawings by Süheyl Ünver with commentary booklet. Large size. Second edition. First edition 1953, second edition 1996. Featuring miniature works, the book is over 50 pages honoring Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror's 49-year life. There are three portraits of Mehmed II, calligraphic descriptions of his three tughras (seals) and miniatures of his mother Hadice Hüma Hatun, his father Sultan Murad II, Grand Vizier Mahmud Pasha and his scholar advisors including Mollah Hocazade, Mollah Gürani, Aksemsettin, Mollah Hüsrev, Mollah Zeyrek and Ali Kuscu. Ünver published the book in 1953 as a tribute to the 500th year of the conquest of Constantinople. Aside from the Ottoman miniatures, the unique ornamentations on the corners and edges of the pages are also eye-catching elements of the author's work. In a previous statement, Ünver said he prepared only one copy, as if he was going to present it to Sultan Mehmed II. The late professor wanted to record the nation's intangible cultural asset and said that each historical artifact should be turned into a written document. This is because he created a number of works on the history of Islam and the Ottoman Empire. He further showed his artistic skills by adding his watercolor paintings to his work, bringing them a visual character.Ünver's book features drawings of the Fatih Mosque, Harbi prayer room, a mosque in Canakkale, the madrasahs in the Fatih district, the treasury of Topkapi Palace, Bab-i Hümayun (Imperial Gate), Cihannüma Mansion of the Edirne Palace, Cinili Mansion, the old imperial palace, the Rumeli Fortress, the Yedikule neighborhood, Ottoman guest houses and hospitals. There are a few blank pages intentionally left by Ünver to allow readers to rest their eyes while reading. The book's introduction cites Ünver's own comments about his work.
