"List of Terms of the Post and Telegraph Offices of the Ottoman Empire" – Bilingual Book, in French and Arabic – Turkey, 1909
Nomenclature des bureaux de poste et de télégraphe de L'empire [Nomenclature of the Post and Telegraph Offices of the Ottoman Empire]. Constantinople: Direction générale des postes des télégraphes et des telephones Ottomans [The head office of the Ottoman telegraph and telephone stations], Mahmoud Bey Press, 1909. French and Arabic.
Alphabetic list of the post and telegraph offices of the Ottoman empire, including departments, places, districts, travel directions, and more. A bilingual book, in French and Arabic, with title pages in the two languages. At the beginning of the book, there is an index of abbreviations and references and lists of offices located on the railroads from Turkey to Asia (including Jerusalem and Haifa) and from Turkey to Europe.
On the inside front cover (on the French side) is a bookplate (by E.M. Lilien) of Davis Trietsch (1870-1935) – a writer, Zionist activist, and member of the Democratic Fraction, the young opposition party that presented an alternative to Herzl's doctrine.
The front cover (on the French side) is stamped, presumably with the owner's stamp of Heinrich Karl Abraham Imhoff Pascha (1854-1918), a Lieutenant General of the Prussian and Ottoman armies and a military writer.
