Ottoman Press between 1908 and 1923

I find Ottoman newspapers fascinating. This is because the medium is unique in the way it keeps a daily record of people's realities.

Sometimes, the things that may have seemed trivial to the Ottoman readership is of significant interest to us. I am trying to figure out the inner workings of the Ottoman press, from a legal and technical perspective. This should allow for a better interpretation of all of the information stored in these newspapers.
