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. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XVII AMONGST THE KALANDARS "How sweet it were, hearing the downward stream, With half-shut eyes ever to seem Falling asleep in a half-dream! To dream and dream, like yonder amber light, Which will not leave the myrrh-bush'on the height; To hear each other's whisper'd speech; Eating the Lotos day by day, To lend oar hearts and spirits wholly To the influence of mild-minded melancholy." Tunrooir. 1 Tu va mulk ti jdh-i-Sikandari, man u rasm u rdh-i-Kolandari; Agar dn khush-ast, tti dar khuri; va gar in bad-ast, mora sazd." Sikandar's pomp and display be thine, the Kalandar's habit and way be mine; That, if it please thee, I resign; while this, though bad, is enough for me." (Kurratu'l-'Ayn). This was how it came about. Ou the afternoon of this notable day, about four hours before sunset, I went into the town to pay some visits, leaving Sheykh Ibrahim asleep in the garden. I first went to see the Frenchmen, about whose health I had heard disquieting reports, which, fortunately, turned out to be exaggerated. Having remained with them for rather more than half an hour, I proceeded to the house of the young artillery officer whose acquaintance I had made through the Sheykh of Kum. While I was sitting there conversing with him, and watching the grotesque antics of a large tame monkey (antar) which he kept as a pet, I first became conscious of an uneasy sensation in my eye. My host, too, noticed that it appeared inflamed, and bade one of his servants bring a bowl of iced water that I might bathe it. So far from deriving any benefit from this treatment, however, it rapidly grew worse, so that, on my return to the garden, I was in considerable pain. Now Usta Akbar, the pea-parcher, whenever I urged him to tell me more about the Bab and his...

Relations between Britain and Iran have always been fraught. Against a background of intrigue, manipulation and Anglo-Russian rivalry for influence, Sir Denis Wright charts the experiences, adventures, and impact of the "English" (including many Scots, Irish, and Welsh) who helped to define the relationship between Britain and Iran from the end of the 18th century to the early 20th century. We meet the diplomats and consuls, soldiers, frontier-makers, spies, traders, travelers, missionaries, concession-hunters, and doctors who in their often colorful, different ways contributed to Anglo-Iranian understanding and misunderstanding.

From Empire to Orient

Travellers to the Middle East, 1830-1926

This book offers an alternative perspective on Britain's late imperial period by looking at the lives and the writings of the men who chose to defy the conventional social and political attitudes of the British ruling classes towards the Near East. Between the Greek revolt in 1830 and the fall of the Caliphate in 1924 a different kind of voice was heard that was both anti-Imperialist and pro-Islamic. Geoffrey Nash places David Urquhart passionate belief in the ideal of municipal government in Turkey, W.S. Blunt's enthusiasm for the Egyptian reformers of the Azhar, E.G. Browne's zeal for the Persian revolution and Marmaduke Pickthall's advocacy of the cause of the Young Turks into their political and historical context and into the context of their writings.

The impact of Persian life and literature upon Victorian England was tremendous. It found its public demonstration in the visit of the Shah, but the number of men of letters who turned to the Persian classics for inspiration were as numerous as they were great: William Jones, Charles Murray, Edward Browne, George Borrow, Richard Burton, Edward Palmer and, of course, Fitzgerald, translator of the Rubaiyat.

This book, now back in print having been unavailable for many years, is one of the most important contributions to Turkic and Mongolic linguistics, and to the contentious 'Altaic theory'. Proponents of the theory hold that Turkish is part of the Altaic family, and that Turkish accordingly exists in parallel with Mongolic and Tungusic-Manchu. Whatever the truth of this theory, Gerard Clauson's erudite and vigorously expressed views, based as they were on a remarkable knowledge of the lexicon of the Altaic languages and his outstanding work in the field of Turkish lexicography, continues to command respect and deserve attention.
