Persian pictures by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )

13 editions published between 1928 and 1947 in English and Undetermined and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brilliant, vivid and impressionistic series of sketches, formed during her 1892 stay in Persia, is Gertrude Bell's first published work. Infused with a distinctive orientalism, "Persian Pictures" is an evocative, virtuosic meditation, moving sinuously between Persia's heroic complex, mythical past and present decline; the public face of Tehran and the otherworldly "secret, mysterious life of the East;" the lives of its women; its enclosed, quasi-medieval gardens; from the bustling cities to the lonely wastelands of Khorasan. Bell's documentation of Muharram--the month of mourning for Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed--and Ramadan, display a mind finely attuned to the differences and similarities between Islam and Christianity, East and West. "Persian Pictures" is both travelog and meditation, an elegaic and beautifully observed account of a spellbinding land.--From publisher description
The heart of Asia : a history of Russian Turkestan and the Central Asian khanates from the earliest times by Francis Henry Skrine( Book )

39 editions published between 1899 and 2011 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1899, The Heart of Asia is a definitive history of Central Asia from pre-history to the contemporary machinations of the Russian empire. The book is valuable not only because of the quality of the historical work on the early period, but also because of the unique picture that it gives of contemporary views on the potential for Anglo-Russian conflict, at a time when the Russian Empire was Britain's closest rival for Asian hegemony. Scholars of modern Russia and Central Asia will find much that echoes, and indeed drives, more recent events. This edition includes 34 illustrations and two maps."--Jacket

The travels of Marco Polo by Marco Polo( Book )

13 editions published between 1931 and 2002 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1931. None of the manuscripts which have come down to us represent the original form of Marco Polo's narrative, but it is clear that certain texts are closer to the lost original than others. Entrusted with the task of preparing a new Italian edition of Marco Polo, Benedetto discovered many unknown manuscripts. He carefully edited the most famous of the manuscripts (the Geographic text) and collated it with the other best known ones. · An invaluable index has been added to Aldo Ricci's of Benedetto's text, which includes all the identifications made in the Geographic tex
