Life and Writings of Quddus
Apologies in advance if this isn't the right board to post this. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the book 'Life and Writings of Quddus' by Ahang Rabbani? It is listed as Volume 25 of Witnesses to Babi and Bahá'í History and the late Dr. Rabbani mentions it in his translation of 'The Genesis of the Babi-Bahá'í Faiths in Shiraz' (where he mentions a forthcoming publication called 'Quddus: Life and Writings'), but I have not been able to find any information on such a book anywhere on the internet (or even any evidence the book actually exists outside of the two mentioned sources).
I would appreciate any information on this book.

Doing some digging, I found a bit of information, but probably not enough unfortunately.
The book is part of Witnesses to Babi and Bahá'í History by Ahang Rabbani, a series of books of which it is Volume 25.
You can find some of the books here online: Witnesses to Babi and Bahá'í History, but, alas, Volume 25 is not available in digital form.

If you examine the residual website of Ahang Rabbani you will note that Vol. 25 was listed as Forthcoming Studies: https://sites.google.com/site/ahangrabbani2/
A list of Rabbani's open electronic publications can be found here https://bahaikipedia.org/Ahang_Rabbani
Do appreciate that Rabbani was a member of the Talisman list and when this was discontinued he was instrumental in forming the Tarikh list Tarikh info page along with its sister, Tarjuman list tarjuman info page If Rabbani has shared any material relative to Vol. 25, then it could potentially be published on either or both of these lists. However, do note that membership requires compliance with the list rules. These request that members will not publish material that is shared there.
It is possible that Rabbani's collection could help form a collection of Bahá'í scholarly material, rather like Hasan Balyuzi's collection has been preserved with the formation of the Afnán Trust Library https://en-gb.facebook.com/AfnanLibraryTrust/ Given the evolving nature of the World Wide Web, valuable electronic material from Bahá'í scholars is at risk of being lost. This underlines the importance of preserving such material in a responsible manner rather than relying on the goodwill of third parties.
