First edition. Including a "critical and descriptive catalogue of the miniatures exhibited at Burlington House January – March, 1931," this hefty, very much "oversize" volume provides thorough documentation of the exhibition itself, along with extensive information on the history and aesthetics of Persian painting. The work, which one reviewer notes "immediately became the standard monographic introduction to the material" (Roxburgh, Art Bulletin, vol. XCV, no. 4), is printed on good paper and is illustrated with a => color-printed frontispiece and 113 plates, 15 of which are in color.
Publisher's ochre cloth, front cover with gilt-stamped title and medallion, in original tan dust jacket; jacket spine and edges chipped but by no means tattered, with volume corners bumped. Foxing to endpapers (only); pages and plates clean. => A significant work, here in the first edition in the uncommon dust jacket. (41400) Please RESHELVE This.
