Reference sources for detailed studies on the southern coast of Anatolia is led by Karamania published by the British Admiral Francis Beaufort in 1817 following his surveys starting in Izmir and halting at Ayas due to a sad event.
The work is like a narrative of travels and contains information about seafaring. It also sheds light onto the history of the south coast of Turkey, its historical geography, archaeology and finally to the administrative and social structure in the early 19th century. The meticulous efforts of the translators Ali Neyzi and Doğan Türker kept the work as loyal to the original as possible. The modern names of the sites are given in italics within parentheses and extra footnotes by the editor are added as well as the drawings, plans, pictures and inscriptions are given as facsimiles.
