A Traveller's Narrative
Written to Illustrate
the Episode of the Báb

A Travller's Narrative

by 'Abdu'l-Bahá
translated and edited by E. G. Browne

This is one of the earliest and most important volumes of Bahá'í history published in English. Originally published in 1891, the main body of the book is Browne's translation of 'Abdu'l-Bahá's own history of the Báb and his religion. It is the only translation of this work that has ever been made.

In addition, Browne himself--perhaps the foremost scholar of Bahá'í history in the West--provides use with the results of his research in the form of hundreds of notes and dozens of essays on the history of the Bahá'í religion. Included is important information on Bahá'u'lláh's family, on Táhirih (Qurratu'l-'Ayn), on the Báb's last moments, on the massacre of believers in Tehran after the attempt on the life of the shah, and so forth. This is a classic work of Bahá'í literature and an essential text for any serious student of Bahá'í history.
