C.A. Storey’s Persian Literature: A Bio-Bibliographical Survey is the most authoritative reference work on the Persian written tradition, offering the names of authors and the titles of those of their works that have survived in the Persian language.
"Charles Ambrose Storey’s (1888-1968) Persian Literature: A Bio-bibliographical Survey is a standard reference work about the Persian literary tradition. Storey’s Survey originally consisted of 5 volumes (1.1; 1.2; 2; 3; and 4), but not all volumes were actually published. A new volume (no. 5) was published later by François de Blois. Based on Storey’s handwritten legacy preserved by the Royal Asiatic Society, Brill has published the missing volumes, completing the Survey in 2020 and 2021.
Explicitly intended as a counterpart to Carl Brockelmann’s Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur, Storey’s Survey offers entries on Persian authors as well as their works, listing their manuscripts and editions.
Storey Online makes available all 6 volumes of Persian Literature: A Bio-bibliographical Survey, as well as the new cumulative index volume, as an online resource. Its publication in Open Access was made possible by the Persian Heritage Foundation."
