1 copy of Zubdat al-tawārīkh by Ḥaydar ibn ʻAlī Ḥusaynī Rāzī
The manuscript lacks a preface. Above the text on f1b a note in blue pencil identifies it as the Mir'at al-Adwar of of Muslih al-din Lari, incorrectly. Over this is another in black ink identifying it as the Zubdat al-Tawarikh of Haidar(-i) 'Ali Husaini Razi which appears to be correct. F1a. Signature of Ellis, and date 25.3.02 Inserted loose near the beginning is a table of contents in the hand of Ellis. The first volume of a large general history, beginning with the creation and ending with Mamliks of Egypt. Headings in red.
The final folio is damaged.
