Al-Zaura was the brainchild of the progressive Midhat Pasha. The paper is arguably the most important source on Iraq’s history during the last 50 years of the Ottoman Empire, from Al-Zaura’s inception in 1869 until Baghdad fell to the British in 1917. It was a comprehensive paper, published twice weekly on Saturdays and Tuesdays, which employed some of Iraqi’s leading writers and intellectuals. Content was in Ottoman Turkish and Arabic. The paper was produced 2,607 times, from its first issue on Tuesday, June 15, 1869, to its last, on Tuesday, March 13, 1917. The issues have the Hijra dates on the right and the Rumi (Ottoman) calendar dates on the left. Occasional date discrepancies occur. Description based on World Digital Library summary.
