- Saʿdī, Musharrif al-Dīn ibn Muṣliḥ Saʿdī Shīrāzī, مشرف الدين بن مصلح سعدي شيرازي, and No author name given.
- This is an illuminated and illustrated Safavid copy of the Būstān (The garden or The orchard), composed by Sa’dī (d. 691 AH / 1292 CE). It was written in black nasta’līq script in the ninth century AH / sixteenth CE in Iran. The codex opens with a frontispiece with the title Kitāb-i būstān inscribed in an illuminated medallion (fol. 1a), followed by a double-page illustration of a banquet scene in a landscape (fols. 1b-2a). Additionally, there are five paintings illustrating the text (fols. 25a, 55b, 58a, 93b, and 119b). The brown leather, blind-stamped binding decorated with a central oval and pendants is not contemporary with the manuscript.
