- This manuscript is an illuminated Timurid copy of a selection of poems by Nūr al-Dīn ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Jāmī (d. 898 AH / 1492 CE). The colophon indicates that it was copied in Herat (present-day Afghanistan) by Sulṭān ʿAlī in 899 AH / 1493-4 CE (fol. 70b). The manuscript opens with an illuminated incipit with an inscribed headpiece. The black leather binding, which is original to the manuscript, has a stamped central lobed oval, pendants, and cornerpieces, which are all covered with cloudband motifs.The doublures of red leather with similar design are decorated with filigree work on a blue ground. There is an erased bequest (waqf) seal and registration statement, probably belonging to the Sultan ʿUthmān (reg. 1027-31 AH / 1618-22 CE) (fol. 1a).
