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 Hajj 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.

Corners and spine ends bumped and a little chafed, bookplate on pastedown, endpapers unevenly browned, pages lightly browned - particularly at outer margins, page edges darkened and lightly chipped. Overall an unmarked near VG copy.
