Persian Manuscripts


1 copy of Jahāngīr′nāmah by Jahangir, Emperor of Hindustan, 1569-1627

Marginal pencil and ink notes, presumably by Price. The memoirs occupy pages 468-527 of the MS, and are followed on 527-535 by the Pand-namah, not here introduced by I'timad al-Daulah. Not by the same scribe as No 114 (1). Autobiographical Memoirs of the Emperor Jahangir. The so-called Garbled Memoirs, with Pand Namah.

Incipit: Ay nam-i [tu] sardaftar-i hunar az [sic, for asrar] wujud
Language(s): Persian.


Storey, i, pp.556-60.
Rieu, i, pp. 253-5.
Ethe, Nos 309-311.
This is evidently the MS which was translated into English by Major Price (London 1829).
