Persian Manuscripts


1 copy of Lubb 'Ain al-Buka' by 'Ali Naqi b, Ahmad Burujirdi.

An account of the martyrdoms of the descendants of 'Ali and Fatimah. Abbreviated from the same author's 'Ain al-Buka'. Author is presumably 'Ali Naqi b, Ahmad Burujirdi. Lacks the beginning of the introduction including the authors name, but gives the title and agrees with the work described by Storey as being an abbreviated version, though lacking any obvious division into sections. Some red headings and punctuation.

Incipit: ... budah wa asl-i in nuskhah-ra namzad-i zawiyah nishinan
Language(s): Persian.
