    More Information:

    James Morier (1780-1849), a British diplomat and novelist, accompanied Harford Jones, special envoy to the Shah of Iran in 1808-1809. His valuable travelogue, with plenty of insightful observations, was published for the first time in London in 1812. The itinerary started in Bombay, going through the main Iranian cities before ending in Constantinople, crossing Western Armenian and Asia Minor. The book, with various additions by the editor, has four engravings based on drawings made by the author, as well as a map. This is the first American edition. The copy contains the signature of its owner, George J. Carleton, dated 1849.
