Firdausi, spent over thirty laborious years in its composition. His work by general consent is accounted to be one of the few great epics of the world. In its own land it has no peer, while in construction and subject-matter it is unique the Shahnama is a storehouse of rich and abundant material. To set forth a complete presentment of it with the needful notes and elucidations is the object of the present translation, made from two of the best printed texts of the original – that of Vullers and Landauer, and that of Turner Macan.”
