<p style='text-align: justify;'>A Safavid-era scribe named Muḥammad Amīn bin ‘Abd Allāh completed this manuscript of the romance of <i>Yūsuf va Zulaykhā</i> by Jāmī (d. 1492) in 957 AH (1550–51 CE). A mystical love story of the Prophet Joseph and Potiphar's wife, the author primarily drew inspiration from the twelfth chapter of the Qur'ān <i>Sūrah Yūsuf</i> and references by prior poets. This volume, copied in immaculate nasta‘līq script sprayed with gold, features a lavishly illuminated opening and five delicately rendered illustrations, with the original lacquered binding and leather filigree doublures. However, due to their fragile condition, a restorer reversed the boards so that the exteriors now feature the interiors, with what remains of the original exteriors preserved inside.</p>
