Some small stamps on titlepages and last textpages. A bit discoloured, volume 2 are pages a bit wrinkled, volume 3 with a few waterstains.Still a very good, neat and firm set! Translated from the original Persian, with notes and illustrations. Edited, with a preliminary discourse by Troyer. First complete edition in English of this ""important [Persian] text of the Azar Kayvani pseudo-Zorostrian sect. It was written anonymously between the years 1645 and 1658 and contains important information particularly about the prevalent religions of India in the 17th century"" (Encyclopaedia Iranica) Allthough there is mentioning of illustrations on the titlepage, we don't see any illustrations, nor have we found any illustrations (other then Arabic type) in comparable copies! Pictures on request.
