Fair. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.
This is a small book, small in overall size and thickness. It is 81 pages. It is full of beautiful poetry.
What I did not like about this book was the way his followers packaged it as original.
The Baha'is in the introduction quoted a man they referred to as an eminent scholar who called the work "fresh and original". While Baha'u'llah may not have copied anyone's works line-by-line, it seems to be very similar to Sufi poetry in style, content and some terminology; i.e. his use of the words "The Friend" for God which has been used by the Sufis since the 2nd century.
In 1854 Baha'u'llah moved to the mountains of Kurdistan and lived amongst the Sufis. He even took the name Darvish Muhammad i-Irani. He stayed until 1856 and wrote the poetry in 1858. I consider this extremely similar to Sufi poetry and believe that the author would have been better served without the effort to make it seem unique.
