Vital Cuinet was a French geographer who was commissioned to survey areas of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century to calculate their population and assess the ability of the empire to pay its debts. His research draws a detailed picture of the Ottoman Empire comprising demographic, economic, military, administrative and geographic aspects of the areas which were surveyed. Compiled into seven volumes, these books provide one of the most complete records of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century with figures and statistics. In this final volume of the series, Cuinet focuses on the northern and north-western parts of Asia Minor, vilayets of Broussa (Bursa) and Castamouni (Kastamonu).
