Works of `Abdu’l-Bahá
Tablets and other Writings:

`Abdu’l-Bahá in London. Addresses and notes of conversations made during `Abdu’l-Bahá’s trip to London in 1911, first published in 1912 through the good offices of Sara, Lady Blomfield. The current publication is believed to be the first reprinting since 1921 when the Bahá’í Publishing Society of Chicago published an American edition. Because the original material is no longer available the Universal House of Justice has approved that the publisher of this edition state that it is no longer possible to verify the translations of `Abdu’l-Bahá’s words.
