1 copy of Amadnamah by Anon

Author: Anon
Title: Amadnamah.

Punctuation and glosses in Hindustani appear in most of the manuscript in red but not in the last folios. Paradigms of Persian verbs. The title Amadnamah appears in pencil on the first folio in Arabic script but is clearly in the hand of a European. Possibly it was written by Price and accepted by Morley. The text begins abruptly with the forms of the verb amadan = to come.
