The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan, the story of a likable Iranian rogue caught up in a series of extraordinary and farcical adventures, remains perhaps the most famous of English picaresque novels and, curiously, a favorite among Iranians. First published in 1823, it was an instant best-seller, and is still in print. Little, however, is known of the life of its author, James Morier. Here, for the first time, the reader can follow the fascinating story of James and his two brothers, Jack and David. Their Swiss-born father was a merchant in Smyrna; but during the Napoleonic Wars the brothers, all British citizens although there was only a tiny drop of British blood in their veins, forsook the world of trade to become involved in the exciting world of countering French activities and influence in the Ottoman Empire and Persia. This book is based on a mass of almost unknown family papers and, through the many letters the Moriers wrote to each other from far-flung corners of the globe, throws fresh light on the lives of people caught up in the early years of colonial expansion.

Not illustrated. 1828 edition. Excerpt: ...all sizes and denominations, enough to have paved the way, if placed side by side, from Tehran to Tabriz; if placed lengthways, God only knows where they would have reached--into the very grave of the father of all the Russians perhaps! ' Bah! bah! bah!' exclaimed the am-bassador; ' say after this that this nation is ruined! Why, here is enough to blow the debt, and the creditors to boot, thousands of parasangs beyond the farthest Je-hanum! Go to, go to, my little uncle, ' said he to me, ' let us talk no more of the ruin of England. The friendship of such a nation is not to be thrown away. If the Turcoman or Yuzbeg once knew that Path Ali Shah was a friend to a king who possesses ten thousand cannon, and ten millions of cannon balls, whose dog would he be to think of disowning his supremacy.' We were taken from one wonder to another, with our hands to our mouths, sucking the fingers of astonishment and admiration. Secrets were explained which before had been kept under the veil of ignorance. The making of a gun now appeared as easy to us as twisting a piece of sugar. We saw iron flowing about as liquid as the waters of a canal, and becoming a cannon, a ball, a bar, or a nail at pleasure. I noted down what we saw, agreeing all the time with my chief, that in vain I wrote, in vain we might take oaths, we should find no one in Persia to helieve us. Among the officers who conducted the ambassador through the establishment was a young ' no beard, ' who attached himself particularly to me, and who showed me all sorts of attentions. I was fearful lest this preference might be noticed by my chief, and therefore rather shunned him. The cause of his attentions was explained when the youth informed me that he was a young Hogg, son to the worthy family.

Excerpt from The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan, Vol. 2 of 3 Are hushed up among the Curds, I have never dared to question any body concern ing them, and cannot, therefore, ascertain whether the reports about my birth be true or not. It is very certain that I never looked up to any one as my mother; but was brought up at hazard among our wo men, and that my earliest friend was a foal, that lived as an inmate with us. It was born in the very tent which my father's wives occupied; and its dam, of the purest Arabian blood, was treated more like one of the family than a quadruped: in fact, it received much more attention than any of the Wives; it enjoyed the warmest place in the tent, was beautifully clothed, and in all our journeys was the first object of our cares. When the mare died, an universal lamentation ensued throughout the en campment. The foal lived to be my father's.
