Ancient Manuscript Review 154 : Antique Ottoman Ferman Pre 1870CE Sultan Abdul Hamid II

This is a Government document in the Ottoman era called a Ferman. Written in Turkish some in black and some in gold. A Sultan Tugra is written in Gold. The Tughra definitely belongs to Sultan Abdul Hamid II ( 1842-1918CE)

I dont have much information of this kind of manuscript and its writing tradition. I need to do more research on this manuscript and will update this entry later.
Similar Ferman sold in Christie's auction for £1,250 last April 2015 in Auction 10428 Lot 349
