Codex | Translation History of the Ottoman Emperors
18th century translation into Romanian of 27 short biographies of Ottoman sultans, from Osman I to Ahmed III (1703-1730). The last event mentioned is the beginning of the Ottoman-Russian war of 1710. On the first folio there are 27 miniatures representing the sultans whose life and deeds are accounted. Victor Papacostea noted that the text presents many similarities with the early 18th century Greek Lives of the Sultans by Dionisie Fotino / Dionysios Photeinos.
