The fifth volume in Atom Damali's series on Ottoman coins has been published. Thanks to Eric VanHove for passing this along.
Mustafa I - Osman II - Murad IV - Ibrahim - Mehmed IV
From the end of the sixteenth century onwards, various administrative, military, industrial, commercial, financial and social developments that occurred within the boundaries of the Ottoman state and throughout the world were instrumental in exacerbating the economic problems of the Ottoman Empire. These developments that greatly effected the coin minting can be described briefly as follows:
Newly discovered trade routes
Changes in military structure and technology
Rebellion in the lands of the Ottomans
New silver mines in North America
Capitulations to the European states
The book covers a detailed historical chronology of the Ottoman Empire, together with the brief history of the reigns of the related Sultans. The history is supported with the economic structure and problems encountered. Also a short history of the cities where the coins are minted is also presented.
Gold, silver and copper coins of the related Sultans are displayed together with the scripts on each and every coin in three languages. Photographs are enlarged for increasing the visibility of the coins and printed in full color.
