Ottoman travelling firman.
Ca. 560 x 800 mm. Ottoman Turkish manuscript with large Tughra. 1 page. Black ink on single sheet of sturdy, smoothed laid paper.
A scarce example of a Levantine manuscript firman granting permission to travel. In the lower corner of the verso are the words "Circassian" and "Black Sea Papers". The tughra appears to be that of Mehmed VI (ruled 1918-1922).
