Very rare English translation of “Der Persianische Cromwel, Oder Leben und Thaten Des Miri-Ways Fürsten von Candahar Und Protectoris Von Persien” (N.p.: 1723): no copies of this book are listed for sale or as having sold at auction. Although Mirwas is an important figure in the history of Afghanistan, the present work is generally supposed to have been fictitious?
