<p style='text-align: justify;'> A clearly-written, albeit unembellished copy of the <i>Laylā va Majnūn</i> by Hātifī, (d. 1520–21), a nephew of ‘Abd al-Raḥman Jāmī (d. 1492), whom composed the opening couplet. Widely esteemed, especially in the Ottoman empire, for his explicit and straightforward manner, he particularly influenced the Azerbaijani Turkish poet Fużūlī. Likely completed in the late 18th to early 19th century in the Indian subcontinent, its first documented owner, Captain H. F. Cane (d. 1828), likely acquired it there. </p>
