Endnotes. From the publisher: "Rumi spoke his poems while whirling about in an ecstatic state, and scribes recorded them through the years. The complete Divan consists of a very thorough translation by Dr. Ergin, consisting of twenty-two volumes. This work was published in cooperation with the Turkish government, which holds the original manuscripts in Farsi, or the Old Persian language. This complete set will provide hours of enjoyment, and serve as a key reference into the spiritual journey Rumi took eight centuries ago toward the enlightenment of love." This series publication commenced with the publisher Current and was completed by Echo Publications (starting after Volume 9) in a matched binding. Light overall shelf rubbing, some bumped corners and spine ends, a little chafing here and there, internally bright and unmarked. Overall a tight, clean VG+ set. Heavy set - additional shipping WILL apply. Item #58278
