Excerpt from Sadi's Moral Book: Being Persian Text and English Translation of Shaikh Sadi's Pand-Namah
Iused hardly make an apology for bringing out this Translation of the best known and most popular of Shaikh Sadi's works. The popularity which the work has hitherto enjoyed ... has nevertheless not been instrumental in preserving this small work of a great man in its original purity, for most of the lithograph ed editions in the Indian market are a poor specimen of the original work. In the present edition I have largely availed myself of an extremely rare ms. Copy in the possession of an unfortunate Muhammad an family of Upper India who value it as one of their dearest possessions to whom I am specially indebted for a free use of it. Thus it will be found that there are many departures from the ordinary text, though as the reader will observe always for the better.
I should here add that in the Introduction I have frequently derived my information from Maulana H ali's in valuable work on Sadi.n.
