A VERY GOOD COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT AND FINELY ILLUSTRATED SURVEY OF PERSIAN ARCHITECTURE. "Probably the single most attractive book on Persia and one of the rarest" (Ghani). Coste (1787-1879) was appointed architect to Mehmet Ali of Egypt in 1818. He spent ten years in Egypt, completing, among other projects, the reconstruction of the defences at Abukir; this resulted in his work Architecture arabe (1837-1839). The present work, together with Voyage en Perse (1842) and Monuments anciens de la Perse (1844), grew out of the French diplomatic mission to Persia in 1839-1841.
