This is a history of the region of Darband from the ancient times to 1262/1846. The author attributes the building of Darband to the legendary king Guštāsb. The most historically useful part of the book is the latter part, where the conquest of the area by Peter the Great of Russia, as well as the events in Iran which led to Peter’s invasion and the loss of territory to the Russians are related.
