Love and Devotion: From Persia and Beyond

Susan Scollay

Jointly published by Macmillan and the State Library of Victoria in association with the Bodleian Library, Oxford, this book accompanies an exhibition of original manuscripts relating to Persian poetry and its milieu to be held at the State Library from March 2012. With contributions by Australian and international scholars and superb examples of the art form as it is portrayed in works like the Bodleian’s famous Shahnama of Firdausi, it is easy to see how the beauty of Persian manuscripts would capture the minds of early European travellers and influence art and literature in the West. This book is lavishly illustrated to feature the gorgeous colours and intricate details of these Persian masterpieces.
