Edward Granville Browne (1862-1926) was a British orientalist renowned for his work on Persia. In this volume, published by Cambridge in 1926 as a new edition of the 1893 original, he recounts his impressions of Persian culture following a twelve-month stay in the area during the years 1887-8. The new edition contains an introductory memoir written by Edward Denison Ross, another orientalist and a close friend of the author for more than forty years. Transcending the colonialist ideals of the time in which it was written, the text provides a lively and thought-provoking narrative that is based upon a genuine fascination with Persia and its people. This is an important book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in orientalism, travel writing, and Persian culture.
