This study is composed of the transcription of the work titled Mebusan-ı Kıramın Tercüme-i Hal ve Sergüzeştleri(1908) by İbnü'r Raci Nuri into Latin alphabet and an introduction written for it. The copy of the text in hand, which was unable to take the attention of the concerned literature during the period, aims to give the life stories of the fırst Deputies in the Second Constitutional Era by focusing on politics and dealing with 8 Deputies. ln the introduction part of the article, as a result of the inducement of this work, the argument that the biographical works are signifıcant tools in understanding and explaining the Ottoman/Republican political tradition is supported through the samples in the book and others in general.
