Cloth, 8vo, viii, 967 pp. Over 4, 000 entries. From a contemporary review by R. M. Burrell: "The subtitle of this book is slightly misleading, for this is not in fact a regular bibliography compiled in the traditional manner from various sources, but an annotated catalogue of the author's own library. It embraces a wide range of subjects relating to Iran, mainly history, topography and modem politics, but with extensive coverage of literature, languages, religion, the arts and archaeology. Over 4, 000 individuai items are listed; almost all are in English, but there are some in several other European languages as well as in Persian and Turkish. The material includes books, pamphlets, journal articles, museum and auction house catalogues, newspaper cuttings and other ephemera. In the preface the author, a Western-educated lawyer, disarmingly admits that the annotations represent his own personal views and must not be seen as the attempt to make an objective and scholarly evaluation of the titles in question...Most of Dr. Ghani's detailed comments relate to works on the twentieth-century history of Iran and for some titles he has written what amounts to a mini-review."
