This thesis covers the evaluation, preparation of the text and the Turkish translation of the work “Risale der keyfiyyet ve kemiyyet-i arazi-yi İrân va Turân” (“Quantity and quality of Iran and Turan lands”) written in Persian language by Nasiriddin bin Emir Shahmurad, who lived in the XVIII–XIX century. Nasiriddin was the son of Emir Shahmurad (1785-1800), ruler of Bukhara. Emir Haydar (1800-1826), who ascended the throne of Bukhara instead of Emir Shahmurad, broke down his relations with his brother Nasiriddin due to the problem of trust, which forced Nasiriddin to escape from Merv, take refuge in Iran, from where he later went to the Ottoman country. Nasiriddin, who came to the Ottoman Capital, wrote the mentioned work “Risale der keyfiyyet ve kemiyyet-i arazi-yi İrân va Turân” upon the request of Mehmet Efendi Örfî, the translator of Sultan Mahmut (1808-1839). In his work, Nasiriddin classified the Iranian and Turan lands by dividing them into provinces and conveyed many important information, such as the borders of each province, its cities, administrators, state revenues, population, number of soldiers, military ammunition, goods produced, and natural wealth.
