Customer Question

I have an antique book that I found in the depo of our hotel. I live in Turkey and I think it's written in Ottoman Turkish so I don't know how to begin since I can't read the text and the dates are not standard since its Islamic. My husband thinks it' was published in the 1800's. We know it's a physics book.
JA: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: We would like to learn more about this book if possible and if it is of any value. Thanks for your time, Penny

I have added 3 images. I tried to send them earlier but looks like they didn't send. Please let me know if you don't receive the images and maybe we can figure out a different route for sending them.

Thank you for the images. I will opt-out and open this question to all the experts.

Hi Penny my name is***** the binding your husband is probably close on the dating. Unfortunately the language is beyond the skills of most. I suggest you have a local scholar or librarian look at the book. Once it is translated I could possibly help you.
