This is the place.  Try doing a search within this site, too.  Sometimes your timing just has to be in line with the Universe.  Don’t give up.  You might also look for the Surveyor’s Historical Society.

Supplemental. 

I really don't know what exactly I am looking for or the value of what is out there. I would like to buy a piece, but I would like to learn about the market too

That is quite a collection.

Tell us a bit about the licensing rules for land surveyors in Turkey.

Probably out of your price range for a conversation piece, but a cool website none the less.
