The publication of Ottoman chronicles which began in 1734 with the edition of Nacimâ’s history, continued after a long break in 1783. This volume, containing the works of three court chroniclers who followed each other in rapid succession, is a chronological continuation of Mehmed Râºid’s history, published by Müteferrika. Arpaemînizâde Mustafa Sâmî (died 1734) was the court’s historian from 1730 to 1733, ªâkir Hüseyin (died 1742) in 1733, and Subhî Mehmed (ca. 1711 – 1769) from 1739 to 1745. The work of the three chroniclers is known as one coherent historiography, which presents the events of Ottoman history from 1730 to 1744. This work is a particularly valuable source on the Hapsburg-Ottoman war between 1736 and 1739, in which Subhî personally participated. The prestige of the work, which offers detailed data on the administrative events (appointments, dismissals and other biographical communications) is further increased by the fact that Subhî in many cases used original documents.
