<p style='text-align: justify;'>The author of this valuable holograph copy of this <i>Dīvān</i>, Mīrzā Zayn al-Dīn Khān (fl. mid-17th century), pen-named 'ʿIshq', presented this volume to the Governor-General of Bengal Sir John Macpherson (1745–1821). The poet details how he travelled extensively and worked in various locations throughout the subcontinent during his lifetime. He also unusually indicates the metres, where and when he composed many poems, and also highlights intertextual connections with the works of other poets.</p>
