A Suggestion For A Guide Book

So let’s see, everyone is asking me for a suggestion for a guide book on İstanbul. Honestly I have no interest in the new popular books. As we say in Turkish what truly valued lays in the old. So here are two books that I can suggest to all you out there. One printed in 1975 and the other in 1978. These two books are the best you can get on information about Istanbul sites and the surroundings. Yes obviously the new stuff is not included but what it bears is more than enough. Especially the folding maps are just fabulous. These two books are rare and can most probably found in second hand shops.
