On the following page is a comparison between the original translation from Farsi by Edward Heron-Allen (OUSELY MS., 140, BODLEIAN LIBRARY, OXFORD) and a poetic version written by Arthur B Talbot.

I'd like to thank Andrew Reid for obtaining a copy of the Heron-Allen translation and putting it into electronic form for me. I'd also like to thank him for negotiating with Mr Ivor Jones who is trustee for the copyright owner.
