<p style='text-align: justify;'>Selections from the first volume of the <i>Siyar al-Mutaʼakhkhirīn</i> (Review of Modern Times), pertaining to the reign of Nawwāb of Bengal, ‘Alīvardī Khān Mahabat Jang (b. 1676 r. 1740–1756). Copied in 3 Ṣafar 1218 AH (5 June 1802 CE), a prior owner acquired this manuscript and added it to an unrelated, uniform set of three volumes, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://www.digitalcollections.manchester.ac.uk/view/MS-PERSIAN-00151/'>Persian MS 151 (Vol. 2)</a>, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://www.digitalcollections.manchester.ac.uk/view/MS-PERSIAN-00152/'>152 (Vol. 3)</a>, and <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://www.digitalcollections.manchester.ac.uk/view/MS-PERSIAN-00153/'>153 (Vol. 4)</a> to complete it. The author, Ghulām Husain Khān Ṭabaṭāḅāī (b. 1727 or 8), a son of Patna Vice-Regent Sayyid ‘Alī Khān and cousin of ‘Alīvardī Khān, Nawwab of Bengal, composed this text in circa 1780–1784, and dedicated it to Governor-General of Bengal, Warren Hastings.</p>
