- Walters Ms. W.603, Book of kings (Shahnama)
- Firdawsī, Abū al-Qāsim Ḥasan ibn Isḥāq Firdawsī Ṭūsī, ابو القاسم حسن بن اسحاق فردوسى طوسى, and No author name given.
- This is an illuminated and illustrated incomplete copy of the Shāhnāmah (Book of kings) by Abū al-Qāsim Firdawsī (d. 411 or 416 AH / 1020-5 CE), dating between the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE and the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE. The text, written in black nastaʿlīq script with chapter/section headings in red on a gold ground, is illustrated with seventeen paintings. Two of the illustrations (fols. 2b and 269a) are in a clearly recognizable Qajar style and certainly date to the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE. The others may be late Safavid, repainted in the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE.
