What for you write Hajji Baba, sir ? King very angry, sir. I swear him you never write lies ; but he say, yes - write. The ambassador then described his adventures : - Never had man seen so much in so short a space of time. A king on a throne ; dresses of all descriptions ; gold, silver, velvet ; sticks, swords, and gold maces ; men with extraordinary wigs sprinkled with dust ; a multitude of omrahs, with scarlet and ermine cloaks ; a rush of men, with a kedkhoda, covered with false hair, at their head ; and to crown all, women ! ‎

James Justinian Morier. The author James J. Morier does a wonderful job in describing t. .e Persian culture as opposed to the English culture. Readers realize that in England the relationship to women and the treatment of the freedom are better while everybody there hates crowds and traffic jams, dusty air, a strong desire to earn more and more money and find influential friends.

Full of rip-roaring exploits, witty satire, and nimble humor, this classic work of fiction, first published in 1824, launches readers along on the rags-to-riches escapades of Hajji Baba, the lazy son of a barber, as he seeks his fortune... but only if it doesn't demand too much work of him. James Morier's journeys through the Middle East as a representative of the British government lent him an extensive and intimate knowledge of Iranian culture, one that he used to great effect in his writing. The translation into Persian of Hajji Baba is, in fact, considered one of the masterpieces of the 19th-century literature of the language, with many native speakers unaware that it was originally penned by a visiting Englishman. Long out of print, this wild novel is sure to delight new generations of armchair adventurers. English author, diplomat, and adventurer JAMES JUSTINIAN MORIER (1780-1849) served as the British ambassador to the court of Persia from 1810 to 1816. He is also remembered for his memoir A Journey through Persia, Armenia and Asia Minor to Constantinople in 1808.

Excellent story, used paperback edition in very good condition, very reasonably priced, fast shipping, good customer service However, this 226 page edition's print is so small, my 60 years plus eyes found it very challenging to read past the introduction. And that's with bifocals and a large magnifying glass. So I found another (used) hardback edition with 504 pages and larger print

Do not order this edition! The font size is about half of the customary size - maybe 6 points rather than the usual 10, 11 or 12. If you order the Kindle it won't matter - of course you can adjust font size. But this edition is unreadable unless you are prepared to use a magnifying glass.
  • GawelleN
I have not read the book yet, the print is very small , and not easy on the eye,
  • Levion
The font size of the type is impossible to read without eye strain, unless you use a magnifying glass. I think it's about a 3 point font.
  • Malojurus
A classic. Had been looking for this book for a while, so glad I could get it on my iPad. Great read.
  • Anaginn
I read someone ele's copy years ago. It was so entralling, I could not put it down until I finished it.
As someone who has himself spent years in the Middle East, and even married into the culture, I find Morier's accounting of Haji Baba completely credible. In fact, except for the time, and places, many of Haji Baba's adventures closely parallel my own.
This book is worth having in one's library as a classic.

Having very recently returned from a three-week trip in Iran, I was impelled to read J. J. Morier's Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan in a Heritage Club edition that had sat, ignored, on my bookshelf for decades.

Purportedly retold by the chaplain to the Swedish Embassy in Constantinople (Istanbul), this is a lively and comic first-person account by Hajji Baba, a barber's son who travels throughout Persia--and Turkey--during the early 19th century with references at one point to Napoleon. All the places Hajji Baba visits are real with references to still existing monuments such as the Royal Mosque in Imam Square, Esfahan. The fascinating social conventions and the tribal differences between the many peoples who still make up much of contemporary Iran, really haven't changed that much over the past 200 years.

The characters Hajji Baba meets all have their own riveting inset stories. But Hajii Baba's accounts of his up-and-down fortunes are probably the best. His many, and always temporary, occupations include that of a dervish, a smoke seller, an executioner's assistant, a novice mullah, and a small-time merchant of tobacco pipes. He has two affairs of the heart, both ending in disaster. Throughout, his personal morality is at best flexible so he usually merits the downs, such as having his feet beaten to jelly, as well as the ups. The novel ends with the Shah appointing him as a deputy accompanying the vizier to England.

At the end, Peregrine Persic, the fictional author, promised a second volume covering this subsequent part of Hajji Baba's life, but to my knowledge it was never published.

This lively novel should be of major interest to anyone who has visited Iran where most of the frenetic animal traffic of camels, horses and mulesLonely Planet Iran (Country Guide) has been replaced with a terrifying mix of cars, trucks and motorcycles. For those who have not, Hajji Baba provides a great reason for such a trip.
A wonderful rollicking adventure that takes you back to a time of innocence in terms of pre air travel and international blandnes, homoginization and cell phones. Where an adventure meant not knowing what was around the next corner instead of googling google earth to see what's there just in case. The butcher son is clear and clean and I enjoyed most was the mid volume tale of the 'Story of the Baked Head'. I have the Random House edition of 1937 with it wonderful colour illustrations (somewhat art deco to my eye) and in text line drawings. A wonderful tale to read to youngish readers if you are not of the politically correct lineage. Enjoy and expand.
