Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877 Excerpt: ...Kutali village bears N. E. In working in, in bad weather, it will be prudent to guard against the eddy winds which are sometimes dangerous, and do not stand too far in towards Arablar island when to the northward of the village of Ausia, as from thence to the north end of the island dangers extend at least 3 cables from the coast.

It is in general very barren, and contains only a few miserable villages and some quarrymen's houses. As its name implies, it is almost entirely composed of marble, the quarries of which the Sultan has had worked, and the marble taken to Constantinople to build palaces. Game, and especially stags, are said to be abundant. Marmara divides the sea of Marmara into two channels, one formed by the coast of Europe to the north; and the other to the south, by the islands Kutali, Arablar, Pasha Liman, and the peninsula of Artaki. The north channel is 10 miles in breadth, quite free from danger, and used by almost all vessels bound to Constantinople, especially in the finer season of the year. The south channel is from 2 to 3 miles in breadth, ...
