Dealer Notes
George Curzon toured Persia from September 1889 to January 1890. On his return he published Persia and the Persian Question (1892), which covered the country’s history, government, and importance to Britain in political terms. The book was accompanied by a map of the area, a map that appeared also in the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society for February 1892, as well as in the present form. This version repeats the memorandum that appeared in the Proceedings, but adds an extensive index. It is uncommon in this separate edition.
