Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Chardin, in his Voyages, describes bas-reliefs of a time long before that of Alexander the Great, in which the king of Persia is frequently represented sometimes just about to mount his horse, at others surrounded by young slave-girls... among whom one inclines a sunshade, while another uses a flyflap made of a horse's silky tail. Other bas-reliefs, again, represent the Persian monarch on a throne, at the conclusion of a victorious battle... and prisoners brought up, one after the other, make humble submission. Here the sunshade has the floating appearance of a glorious standard..." Written on border: "1883"
