GREAT BRITAIN AND PERSIA,
PERSIA AND OTHER FOREIGN POWERS,
WHOLLY OR PARTIALLY IN FORCE ON THE
1ST APRIL, 1891.
SIR EDWARD HERTSLET, C.B.
BUTTERWORTHS, 7, FLEET STREET,
HARRISON & SONS, 59, PALL MALL,
In January, 1875, the publication of a separate collection of Treaties was commenced, the object of which was to show how the Trade between Great Britain and Foreign Powers was regulated, and what Privileges British Subjects could enjoy in certain Foreign Dominions and Possessions, not only under the English Treaties concluded with those Powers, but also in virtue of the Treaties which those Powers had concluded with other Countries, the benefits of which could be claimed by this country under the most-favoured-nation clauses of the English Treaties.
The First Part of this collection was devoted to an examination of the Treaties which AUSTRIA-HUNGARY had concluded with Great Britain and with other Foreign Powers. This was followed by a similar examination, in separate collections, of the Treaties concluded by TURKEY, ITALY, CHINA, JAPAN, and SPAIN.
The General Title given to these Volumes was—" Treaties and Tariffs regulating the Trade between Great Britain and Foreign Nations."
The present Volume relating to Persia is intended to form one of this series ; but it has been found necessary to alter the Title, since it has been considered advisable to include other Subjects than those of Trade, and to insert in the Collection not simply abstracts but complete copies of the Treaties which Persia has concluded, not with this country only but also with other Powers, relating to Commerce, Navigation, Telegraphic communications, the Slave Trade, Boundaries, and other matters.
The Title of the present Volume will therefore be—“ Treaties concluded between Great Britain and Persia, and between Persia and other Foreign Powers; wholly or partially in force on the 1st April, 1891."
It has not been thought necessary to give copies of the expired Treaties concluded between this Country and Persia previous to the commencement of the present century, as they are all to be found in the 6th Volume of “ Aitchison's Collection
