An impressive press image of the Bakhtiari tribe – revolutionaries in the Persian Constitutional Revolution of 1905-1911 – here posing in strength with their weapons. Their leader, Sardar As’ad Bakhtiari (1856-1917), was a key figure in the Iranian revolution; under his command (and with German Empire weapons) these forces captured Tehran in 1909 to reinstate the constitution, heralding the modern era.

The Harlingue agency was established at the Parisian address on the verso of this print in 1905.

‘THE LAST OF THE PHYSIOCRATS’ SCHMALZ, Theodor Anton Heinrich.

Économie politique, ouvrage traduit de l’Allemand ... par Henri Jouffroy ... revu et annoté sur la traduction, par M. Fritot ... Tome premier [- deuxième].

First edition in French of this work on the principles of economics, originally published in 1818 as Staatswirtschaftslehre in Briefen an einen teutschen Erbprinzen. Schmalz (1760–1831) has been called ‘the last of the physiocrats’. ‘Though he criticised Adam Smith severely, he was opposed to protective duties. He compared Colbertism to the Ptolemaic, physiocracy to the Copernican system, Smith being the Tycho Brahe holding an intermediate position between the two. The doctrines of Quesnay, he was convinced, would ere long everywhere triumph’ (Palgrave).
