This bibliography is also known as “Catalogue of Ozege”, which was not only a colleague but also a constant source of encouragement and expert in his field. Indeed, this important individual can be described as a “Katip Celebi of our century”. In the case of a discrepancy, an immediate attempt was made to relocate the original work, i.e the actual salname or nevsal itself. This 5-volume work acts as a window into an intellectual life and culture antedating the transition to the Latin alphabet, and which of course published its ideas in the Arabic script. Sources related to economy can be found at the following sections:

– Vol.1 :

o   “D”, i.e Devlet-i Aliyye-i Osmaniye Budcesi / Ottoman Empire Budget (p 273); 1333 Senesi Budcesi / Budget of Year “1333” (p. 273)

o   “E”, i.e Ekonomik Politika / Economy Policy (p 332)
