Abstract

Travelogues are valuable historical resources communicating a significant part of the information neglected by other historical sources through a different approach and in a specific way. During Qajar era, due to the ties between Iran and Europe, some considerable travelogues were created, a vast part of which revealing various aspects of the Persian society as well as some developments within it. Along with these lines, the comparison and equalization could be observed between the Persian and the European civilizations. Sometimes the travelers compared and assessed the two explicitly. The present study aims to explore and analyze some dimensions of the explicit comparisons so that beyond the assessment of the Persian society during the Qajar era, some developments could be investigated and also apart from internal resources, the causes why some aspects of civilization in the two regions differed may be decoded. As such, the study tries to answer the questions as to which aspects of civilization had been subject to the comparison and assessment of the travelers, and also whether their images of Persia during the Qajar era could be a reasonable measure for the comparison.
