  1. Thank you for this wonderful list, Laura! My sons and are will be enjoying these for some time to come. It's a little like being gifted the Middle Eastern version of the Harvard Classics!

    1. Oh, I am so glad you like it, Korinne! The Middle East and India are the two areas that I am personally most fascinated by, so they are better developed than some of the other sections here. I was amazed at all the beautiful books I found here. Admittedly, it is the result of the dreadful geopolitics of the 19th century and what England, in particular, was doing in the Middle East and India, but at least we did get some good books out of the bad business...
