Description :


This work on Mawlana Rumi has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilisation as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact, and remains as true to the original work as possible.


'The Persian Mystics, Rumi' includes selections from Reynold Nicholson's translation of the Diwan Shams Tabriz, and extracts from E. Whinfields translation of the Masnavi.


This book is an exact 1920 reprint of the first edition of May 1907.
