Item Description: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1902. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. In contemporary cloth bdg. Uncut paper. Minor fading. Large roy. 8vo. (23 x 19 cm). In English and Persian. [xxii], 86, [1] p. The lament of Bâbâ Tâhir. Being the Rubâ'iyât of Bâbâ Tâhir, Hamadânî ('Uryân). The Persian text edited, annotated and translated by Edward Heron-Allen. And rendered into English verse by Elizabeth Curtis Brenton. Baba Tahir (var. Baba Taher Oryan Hamadani) was an 11th-century Persian poet. His poetry is written in Hamedani dialect of Persian language. According to L. P. Elwell-Sutton he probably wrote in the local dialect, which "Most traditional sources call it loosely Luri, while the name commonly applied from an early date to verses of this kind, Fahlaviyat, presumably implies that they were thought to be in a language related to the Middle Iranian dialect Pahlavi. Rouben Abrahamian however found a close affinity with the dialect spoken at the present time by the Jews of Hamadan." According to The Cambridge History of Iran, Baba Tahir spoke a certain Persian dialect. Bookseller Inventory # 031107
