Ahmet, Thanks for these images. Can you tell us more about what
collection they come from? Are they taken from endpapers?
bookcovers? Pamphlet wrappers? Dimensions? Are any ownership seals or
inscriptions present? Or were the images cropped so as to remove them?
One seems similar to an example published by Haemmerle:
Another very similar example is in the collection of the late Nüsret
Hepgül in the Süleymaniye Library.
Finally, your writing seems to me to be a kind of historicized
conjecture, rather than about what Hatip Effendi may have done during
his life. The only historical account of his life that I am aware of
was written in Mustakimzade Ibrahim's Tühfe-i Hattatin. Have you used
other any historical sources?
