This book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. 1832. The work here submitted to the public presents for the first time in the English language an abridgment of the heroic poem of the great poet of Persia. The Shah Nameh is indeed a history in rhyme. It comprises the annals and achievements of the ancient kings of Persia, from Kaiumers down to the invasion and conquest of that empire by the Saracens, in 636, an estimated period of more that 3600 years. It was finished in the 11th century, gathered from the tales and legends for ages traditionally known throughout that country, and in accordance with that origin, it abounds in adventures of the most wild and romantic description.
