42. Afrukhta, Dr. Yunis Khan. Khatirat-i nuh sala-yi 'Akka. Reissued as Khatirat-i nuh sala, [Tehran], Baha'i Publishing Committee, 1967-68 ed., 564. [Tehran]: Baha'i Publishing Committee, n.d. A detailed memoir of 9 years spent in Acre and Haifa at the turn of the century. The author, an Iranian Baha'i physician, was a leading supporter of 'Abd al-Baha', and his narrative provides valuable information on the conflict between the latter and the partisans of his half-brother, Muhammad 'Ali. One of the most important memoirs from this crucial period. An English translation is, I understand, in progress.

52. Arbab, Furugh. Akhtaran-i taban. [Tehran]: Baha'i Publishing Committee, 126 B.E./1969-70. A collection of 56 biographies of Babi and Baha'i women. Many of those included are Americans or Europeans, but the more interesting material concerns Iranians, for whom biographical accounts are less readily available. It is interesting to note that 19 of the latter seem to be recorded primarily as wives, mothers, or sisters of eminent Baha'i men.

[Tehran]: Baha'i Publishing Committee, 129 B.E./1972-73. A selection of anecdotes relating to Abd al-Baha's travels in America, Europe and Egypt, aimed at a young audience. The author's sources are: articles by Juliet Thompson in Star of the West [item xx]; memoirs of Vali Allah Khan Varqa; Blomfield's Chosen Highway [item xxx]; Zarqani's travel diary [items xxxx, xxxxx]; and Suhrab's Abdul Baha in Egypt [item xyx]. Arbab was for some time secretary of the NSA of Iran.

The only substantial account of Shoghi Effendi by a non-Baha'i writer. Bach, a well-known American writer on religious topics, visited Shoghi Effendi in Haifa, being granted an interview of some three hours. Very little of the book actually deals with Shoghi Effendi himself. Here, as in Baha'i accounts, the subject is almost invisible behind the cause. The text is unpaginated. Collins 7.100.

85. Balyuzi, H. M. Baha'u'llah. Later reissued with a longer essay as Baha'u'llah: A Brief Life (item x) ed., 34. London: Baha'i Publishing Trust, 1938.

86. Balyuzi, Hasan M. 'Abdu'l-Baha, The Centre of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah. xiii, 560. London: George Ronald, 1971. The first of Balyuzi's hagiographical trilogy devoted to the three central figures of the movement (see also items xx and xxx). As in the case of Baha' Allah himself, there is a surprising paucity of firm historical material for the early period. A large part is devoted to a detailed (and rather dull) account of 'Abd al-Baha's Western tours and talks, largely based on Zarqani's trave;l diary (item xx). Far too little attention is paid to the subject's writings.

87. Balyuzi, Hasan M. Baha'u'llah, The King of Glory. Persian translation by Minu Sabet, as Baha' Allah, Shams-i Haqiqat, Oxford, George Ronald, 1990 ed., Oxford: George Ronald, 1980. The largest and generally speaking the best of Balyuzi's trilogy of hagiographies of the central figures of the movement (see also items xx, xxx). At 429 text pages, this is the only full-length study of the prophet but is, for all that, remarkable for the paucity of solid information it provides about its subject. There are several addenda on general historical topics and biographical notes written by Moojan Momen.

88. Balyuzi, Hasan M. Baha'u'llah. A brief life, followed by an essay on the Manifestation of God entitled The Word Made Flesh. The section on Baha' Allah was originally issued in London by the Baha'i Publishing Trust, 1938, with another n.p. edition in the same year. Several reprints have been made of the 1963 edition. ed., London: George Ronald, 1963. Not to be confused with the author's later and much larger study, Baha'u'llah, The King of Glory (item xx), this is Balyuzi's first attempt at hagiography. The book is divided almost equally between the historical account and the theological essay.

89. Balyuzi, Hasan M. Edward Granville Browne and the Baha'i Faith. ix, 142. London: George Ronald, 1970. Balyuzi's first serious work and the first attempt at Baha'i scholarship in a Western language. The basic theme had already been explored less intelligently in Gulpaygani's Kashf al-ghita' [item xx]: Browne as a sympathetic scholar misled by his Azali connections into adopting an anti-Baha'i position. Balyuzi never gets to grips with Browne's views, but does at least admit some of his virtues. Browne's criticisms retain much of their force.

90. Balyuzi, Hasan M. Eminent Baha'is in the time of Baha'u'llah, with Some Historical Background. xvii, 381. Oxford: George Ronald, 1985. A collection of hagiographies of the most important disciples of Baha' Allah, originally intended as the second volume of a four-volume study of the prophet and his times. Several chapters were completed by Balyuzi's continuator, Moojan Momen. Part 2 contains materials relating to the Caspian region and the connection of Baha' Allah's family with it. The book is copiously illustrated. The style is unremittingly hagiographical.

Biographical detail is sparse, and the connection between Mirza 'Abd Allah's music and his faith is tenuous. One interesting section quotes from correspondence between Farahani and 'Abd al-Baha'.

Rather sparse biographies of the author's grandfather and great-uncle, together with fuller details concerning the former's son, Ghulam 'Ali Davachi, a well-known Baha'i pharmacist of the period of 'Abd al-Baha'. The text is accompanied by numerous transcriptions of letters from Baha' Allah, 'Abd al-Baha', and Shoghi Effendi.
