Chapter Summary

The Istanbul narh defteri of 1640 lists a large number of different furs that were available in the Ottoman capital. The south-north trade over the Bursa-Istanbul-Caffa or Akkerman routes by sea and overland by Edirne-Kilia-Akkerman were dominated by Muslim merchants. In the seventeenth century the Ottoman-Polish trade entered a period of crises and breakdowns. In the eighteenth century the wars between Russia and the Ottoman Empire had a negative effect on the commercial activities between these two empires and after the loss of Lwow to the Habsburg Monarchy (1772) the only free communication route under Polish control remained Podolia until 1793. Many artisans from the Anatolian countryside or different provinces of the Ottoman Empire were among the large number of people who came to the Ottoman capital in order to settle there.
