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.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.
