The author James Justinian Morier (1780-1849) was a British diplomat who spent many years in Iran, about which he wrote a number of works, both fiction and non-fiction. "The Adventures of Hajjî Baba of Ispahan" (first published in 1824) is his most famous, and the first of his "Haji Baba" series - it is said to be so accurate in its detail that translations of the work into Persian are widely counted as outstanding examples of the local literature. This Lawrence & Bullen edition is considered one of the best, illustrated with reproductions of important Persian works of art, and with added useful notes on Persian life and culture.
