Book Description

Oct. 3 2005 Hesperus Classics
"I had De Amicis' text ready when I came to Istanbul. For he had seen what I cannot see today." (Umberto Eco from his foreword)

Constantinople is the first English translation of an evocative account of travel writing about one of the world's most exotic cities. Coming upon Constantinople by boat, Edmondo de Amicis is seduced by the slow unveiling of rooftops, domes and minarets as the city emerges out of the mist.
