The book is an autobiography of Tahmasp I, the second shah of Safavid Iran (1514 – 1576), which also touches the Ottoman-Persian relations and religion.
The publishing house Kaviani in Berlin was specialized in Persian books and was at the time described as the “press, financed and managed by Persians desirous of producing good and cheap Persian books, both classics and modern educational works, offering correct and well-printed texts” (Browne, E. (1924). Some Recent Persian Books Publications of the “Kaviani” Press, Berlin. Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, 56(2), 279-280). During World War I the publishing house was known for publication of a propaganda magazine Kaveh, founded in 1916 by the Intelligence Agency for the Orient (Nachrichtenstelle für den Orient – NfdO) of the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin.
Worldcat lists three institutional examples, housed by University of Pennsylvania Libraries (wrongly dated in 1965), University of Utah and University of California Los Angeles (both wrongly dated in 1964).
