Edward Granville Browne (1862-1926), was a British Orientalist who produced numerous works of academic value, mainly relating to the areas of Persian history and literature. Originally published in 1932, this volume is based on the list of Browne's writings at the end of his Materials for the Study of the Babi Religion (1918), but differs from it in some respects. It comprises all his own books, editions, and translations; the articles which he contributed to the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society; his political pamphlets and his papers read to and published by the Persia Society. This is a well-organised and informative text that will provide a valuable resource for anyone interested Browne, and Persian culture in general.
