Book Description Istanbul: InterMedia, 1999., Istanbul:, 1999. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. DELEON, JAK The Bosphorus. A historical guide. Istanbul: InterMedia, 1999. 8vo., 238 p., color and b/w ills. In English. From Byzantium to Constatinople and from then to Istanbul, this fabled city, divided by the Bosphorus strait, lies in both Europe and Asia. The European side is seperated into two by a scimitar-shaped gulf called the Golden Horn: the old town sprawls along one side, with its Byzantine ramparts and Ottoman palaces facing the Marmara Sea, the Propontis of antiquity; on the other side, one can see the ancient Genoese port of Galata and the more modern quarters beyond, with the legendary Bosphorus winding its way up to the Black Sea, the Pontus Euxinus of antiquity. It is this garland of waters which makes Istanbul, whose seven hills are crowned with imperial monuments, a unique city. Paperback. As new ISBN: 9789757143277 CATALOG: Istanbul / Constantinople KEYWORDS: Istanbul - Constantinople Bosphorus Guide. Bookseller Inventory # 40176
