Klappentext

Excerpt from Behind an Eastern Veil: A Plain Tale, of Events Occurring in the Experience of a Lady, Who Had an Unique Opportunity of Observing, the Inner Life of Ladies of the Upper Class in Persia

IT may be well that I should state that the de scriptions of things Persian in this book are ab solutely accurate. The episode of the Crown of Glory really took place; while the account of the great earthquake in Shiraz is given from the lips of one who was present at that appalling catastrophe. Strange things are here described, but they have happened, and will happen again nothing is exaggerated, nothing overdrawn, in this Plain Tale of life in Persia. As to the spelling of Persian words, the example of Morier is followed, and they are spelt as pronounced, no.
