A fine copy of the great classic on the remains of art and architecture created in the vast Iranian territory between the 7th century B.C. and the 7th century A.D. Madame Jeanne Dieulafoy, her husband's constant companion on his expeditions, was a master of archaeological photography who used the brilliance of the natural light of the region to great effect at a time when more of the antiquities were in existence.
