Persian Manuscripts


1 copy of ʻĀlamgīrnāmah by Muḥammad Kāz̤im ibn Muḥammad Amīn

First folio, recto, stamp, the name filled in by hand: Presented to the ROYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY by John Romer Esq. (There is a confusion in Codrington/Reade's description, deriving from a hand written note in the Library's copy of Codrington. There details referring to Morley's printed catalogue No 133 (Akhbar-i Darbar-i Mu'alla) are entered opposite Codrington No 133. These do not refer to the present MS, which is Morley No 129.) Headings and punctuation in red.

Incipit: Ay dadah bi-'aql partau-i agahi
