PERSIAN PICTURES, with a Preface by Sir E. Denison Ross

New York: Boni and Liveright, 1928. First Edition. Hardcover. An evocative, virtuosic meditation, moving sinuously between Persia's heroic, complex, mythical past and its modern decline. Bell (1868-1926) traveled extensively in Greater Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, and Arabia and contributed to British policy-making in those regions. Octavo. Original pink paper-covered boards over a cream cloth spine, with black and gilt titles. A bit of foxing and offsetting to the preliminary and concluding leaves. The dust jacket is moderately browned, with some occasional edgewear; else about very good. Very good / Very good. Item #70693
