    Abstract

    SIR DENISOK Ross, who contributes a memoir of the author to this volume, points out that it is a remarkable fact that one of the most fascinating and instructive books of travel ever written should have remained out-of-print for a long period of years. Not only did Browne's valuable work cover a very interesting and important period in the political relations of East and West, as well as in the internal history of Persia, but also he covered ground in his journey which is still very little known. Where it is more familiar, a comparison with present-day conditions, especially, for example, in Asiatic Turkey, is highly instructive.

    A Year among the Persians: Impressions as to the life, Character, and Thought of the People of Persia, received during Twelve Months' Residence in that Country in the Year 1887–1888.

    By Edward Granville Browne. With a Memoir by Sir E. Denison Ross. New edition. Pp. xxiii + 650. (Cambridge: At the University Press, 1926.) 25s. net.
