<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Makhzan-i Afghānī</i> (Afghan Treasury), composed by the Mughal court chronicler Khvājah Niʻmat Allāh b. Khvājah Ḥabīb Allāh Haravī (fl. 1613-1630), presents a history of Afghanistan> until the early seventeenth century. The work opens with three chapters (<i>bāb</i>) regarding the region's early legendary history and the Islamic conquest, followed by three books (<i>daftar</i>) devoted to the Lodi Sultans and famous religious and spiritual leaders, as well as a conclusion (<i>khātimah</i>) devoted to the genealogy of various Afghan tribes. Shaykh Niẓām al-Dīn Nawkar Ṣāḥib copied this volume on behalf of the French military figure, philanthropist, and collector Claude Martin (1735–1800) in Lucknow. </p>
