Offered here is a facsimile reprint of the 1928 first edition of Abdur Rahman Chughtai's famous work 'Muraqqa-i Chughtai'. Chughtai himself issued reprints of this work in the decades subsequent to the first edition, but these reprints never captured the elegance of the original, having different bindings and fewer images. The original book was originally published in Lahore by Jahangir Book Club with 34 illustrations which accompanied the text of the Diwan-i Ghalib, and two English introductions by James H. Cousins and Dr. Sir Mohammad Iqbal. The edition offered here reproduces all of this content, retains the design of the book both internally and externally, and adds three new bilingual introductions discussing the book; it was published in 2009 by Urdu Academy Andhra Pradesh. Given how rare the first edition is, this reprint is a good way to appreciate the original 'Muraqqa'. The book is in good condition. The one major flaw is a tear along the edge of one of the boards. Apart from this there is mostly minor wear: the boards exhibit some bumping to corners and there are a few page bends, but the text is in near-perfect condition and the binding is firm. This book is brought to you by Babar's Bibliotheca:
