BELL, Gertrude Persian Pictures. With a Preface by Sir E. Denison Ross. London, Ernest Benn Limited, [1928].

8vo. Original cloth, spine lettered in black; pp. 198; light marking to cloth, shelfmark label on front fly-leaf, a good copy.
A new edition, with a new preface, of Bell's first book, Safar Nameh, which had appeared anonymously in 1894, and is virtually unobtainable now. Bell visited Persia for the first time in 1892, and fell in love, both with the country and her traveling companion Henry Cadogan. The last two chapters are on Constantinople.
