Ferrier came to Iran from Europe during the Qajar dynasty era with different motives. In the time of Mohammad Shah Qajar, he was employed by the Iranian government to train the military forces. He spent a relatively long time in Iran and worked in various occupations.
The current travelogue is the result of Ferrier's trip from Baghdad to Herat. His knowledge of  Persian language as well as the culture and history of Iran makes his travelogue distinguished, and this feature can have novel and valuable points both for those interested in the history of Iran and for researchers of the history particularly during the Qajar era.
