Descripción:

2 volumes octavo. Original green-blue diapered cloth, title gilt to the spine, sage green surface-paper endpapers. Ex-library set from the Colorado State School of Mines, their ink-stamps to the title pages, occasional blind-stamps, a little rubbed and marked, front endpapers of volume I discoloured by the removal of bookplate, but text-blocks clean and sound, remains a very good set. Folding frontispiece map to each with route marked in red, and 5 other similar maps. First US edition, same year and same sheets - with cancel title - as the first London edition. Highly-detailed, and well-written travelogue in diary form of a round trip undertaken by a Bengal Civil Servant. Stack set out from Bareilly in the North-West Provinces in January 1881 travelled across India by train, and thence to the Persian Gulf on the British India Steam Navigation Company ship Rajputana making landfall at Muscat, crossing from there to Ormuz. What follows is a very thorough tour of Persia, excellently-mapped, well-observed, and carefully-recorded, concluding with chapters offering some general observations on the regional geography, land-revenue system, "the Present Condition of Persia", and hints to travellers "On Travelling in Persia". Stack, travelled because he " began to be conscious that a change of climate was desirable", died five years after publication, aged just 37. Uncommon, just 10 copies on Copac. Burrell, lot 772, this edition, £800 hammer in 1999; Ghani pp.249-250; Wilson p.214; not in Atabey, Blackmer or Macro. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1882 edition. Excerpt: . chapter V. zaeda kuh to teheran. Seventy-four Farsakhs: Seventeen Days. 27th June, Sulaijan, 4 farsakhs; 7.10 a.m. to noon.--We marched three farsakhs along the left bank of the river, past several holms where Arab cattle were pasturing. The Arabs live not in black tents but in square flat-roofed huts of reeds. They seemed poorer even than the Bakhtiaris, but their cows and heifers were many. We passed large spaces once covered with the crops of villages, but now open grazing-land. It is said that the Afghans destroyed 333 villages in Zarda Kuh, and the land has remained waste ever since. We left the river and turned up a defile called the Tang-i-gazin or pass of tamarisk. The river narrows after passing the mouth of the defile, and flows under high cliffs. It was in this defile that Rustam cut the forked twig of tamarisk which, when shaped into an arrow, put out both the eyes of Afrasiab at once, and gave the victory to the Persian champion. Crossing the heights, we came down on the river again. I was riding in advance with our Khan. We passed a horseman, armed and alone; some others rode nearer the river, half a mile below. The horseman spoke to me in Persian, asking my nationality and business, and then interchanged a few words in Luri or Bakhtiari with the Khan; who, riding up to me as we passed on, said, That man was talking nonsense. What nonsense? I asked. He was saying that had I not been safeguarding you, he would have robbed you. I doubted considerably whether this was a correct version of their conversation; and Sayyid Ali, to whom the Khan subsequently narrated the incident, treated the thing as a fiction. We had now to ford the river, being here about sixty yards broad, with a strong stream up to the girths of the. Nº de ref. de la librería AAV9781230323077
