Please note that the Encyclopaedia Iranica sells below
its real production costs and for much less than comparable specialized encyclopaedias

Encyclopaedia Iranica Fascicles, Covers, and Prelims
the Encyclopaedia Iranica is a continuing work-in-progress, it is possible to purchase individual
sections of each volume as they are released. These are called fascicles.
(In Persian, jozveh.)
These are primarily of interest to libraries and individuals who wish to have as much of
the Encyclopaedia as possible at any time without waiting for complete volumes to
Each fascicle is paper-bound and usually contains 112 pages.
Volumes 1-5 have eight fascicles, and all following volumes have six.
Each fascicle is numbered with the volume and part number. For example, to build volume
12, you would need fascicles 12/1, 12/2, 12/3, 12/4, 12/5, and 12/6.
To build a complete volume, you will also need the preliminary
each volume (these include publishing information, indices, addenda, corrigenda, and
other material meant to accompany the volume) as well as the covers to
bind them all together into a hardback book.
There is no significant price advantage to buying the individual components and piecing
them together — it is primarily for those who wish to build their collection as
it is published. If a bound volume is available, we suggest that you purchase that, instead.
