A Literary History of Persia by Edward G. Browne is a veritable magnum opus covering the Pre-Islamic to the Firdawsi periods, including mysticism (tasawwuf). The author has made a splendidly thorough study of the subject, basing his conclusions on source material spread over a vast era of almost two millenia.
The book will be interesting and useful both to those who have no previous knowledge of Persian culture and history as well as to those who are already well versed in these subjects.
This edition contains Two Volumes within one book. Volume One has 535 pages, and Volume Two has 577 pages, which is a total in excess of 1100 pages. As it is printed in India it appears a bit rough round the edges, creases on the spine, with a few marks and bruises here and there. Please take this into account when ordering. A western printed edition perfectly bound in Hardback is also available to order but this will cost an astronomical £600.
