Books, Photos and Antiques on Afghanistan and the Islamic World.

Silk Road Books and Photos was established by me, Farrukh Husain, from my large personal collection of books and photos on Afghanistan and the Islamic East. I was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in July 1996 and  became an employment law specialist  Solicitor in 2014. I have been collecting books on Afghanistan since 1987 and have a broad knowledge and interest in Afghanistan, Central Asia and Pakistan, which are at the heart of the Asian Silk Road. Over recent years my collection expanded to cover Islamic art and the Islamic world more generally. My ancestor’s served in the armies of Ahmed Shah Durrani, served in the Afghan Royal Court of Shah Shujah Ul Mulk from at least 1809 until 1842  and fought in the Second Anglo Afghan war. I have travelled extensively in the Islamic East including Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan and have worked as a history researcher for authors including William Dalrymple on ‘Return of the King the battle for Afghanistan’. My own work on the First Anglo-Afghan war is a seminal work entitled 'Afghanistan in the age of Empires - the Great Game for South and Central Asia'  and can be purchased directly from me at £25 per hardback copy.
