Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This unsigned and undated copy of the <i>Mas̲navī-i Ma‘navī</i> (Spiritual Couplets) by Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī (1207–1273) opens with a brief Arabic preface and contains six lavishly illuminated carpet page openings indicating the start of each of the six book bound together within the volume. While undated, the manuscript appears likely completed in India. After suffering extensive water and mould damage, a binder expertly repaired many of the margins; however, the penultimate folio before the conclusion, and possibly others may be missing.</p>
