A history of Persia not by Herodotus
This book covers the period from Cyrus I to Alexander of Macedon and includes background material about prehistory and the nearby kingdoms. It includes extensive material about Persian art, sculpture, and architecture, apparenty much of it by Professor Olmstead's daughter. Extensive descriptions are given of Persepolis and of other art. I only wish they had been cross-referenced to the plates. Unfortunately Olmstead died in 1945, and the work was edited by his colleagues (as explained on the cover). This may be the cause of a loose organization and some wordy passages.
