EYUP SABRI PASHA WAS BORN IN TASALYA (THESSALIA) IN THE 19th C. AND DIED IN ISTANBUL IN 1890. HE IS BETTER KNOWN WITH HIS DESCRIPTIVE BOOKS ABOUT MECCA, MEDINA, THE ARABIAN PENINSULA AND THE WAHHABY ACTIVITIES BESIDE HIS RELIGIOUS BOOKS. HE WAS AWARE OF THE OFFICIAL ISSUES OF THE HEJAZ BECAUSE OF HIS BEING ACQUAINTED ON THE OFFICIAL CORREPONDENCE BETWEEN THE VILAYET OF HEJAZ AND THE CENTRAL AUTHORITY IN ISTANBUL Five parts in five volumes. (Part 1) Mir'at Mecca in tow volumes. Vol. 1, (36), Index, pages 1 to 480 with lithographic plates of which tow are in colours on double pages. Vol. 2, index, pages 481 to 1175 with lithographic plates of which one is gilted, one folding plan of the holy mosque in Mecca. The tow volumes of Mecca are in contemporary fine bindings with the arm of the Ottoman state on the first volume. (Part 2) Mir'at al Medina in tow volumes printed in 1886. Vol. 1, (8), index, pages 1 to 642 with some diagrams and lithographic plates including one folding in green and silver. Vol. 2, pages 643 to 1343. The tow volumes of Medina are in contemporary fine Ottoman bindings with richly gilted spines. (Part 3) Mir'at Jazirat al 'Arab, View of the Arabian Peninsula, one vol. printed in 1888. index, 416 p. with 2 lithographic plates. Contemporary fine Ottoman binding with richly gilted spine. This volume unusually includes five original albumen print photographs (with manuscript description in Ottoman) of which one or tow are of natural views in Mecca: 1- the government building... 2- the head police office. The photographs due to the early photography period in Mecca, possibly 1882 or 1881 (before Muhammad Sadiq's photographs). While should take place in the first volume of Mir'at Mecca which printed in 1883, the five photographs were bound in this volume by mistake.
