<p style='text-align: justify;'><i>Ṣad dar</i> (One hundred Doors) by Īrānshāh ibn Malikshāh, in New Persian verse. Originally completed by the author in 1494 as a versified version of a well-known prose text, it contains one hundred chapters on different topics pertaining to the Zoroastrian faith. Possibly completed in Surat> for British surgeon Samuel Guise, the volume curiously omits Chapters 23 to 65, with folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(38);return false;'>17b to 33b</a> left blank, but then it resumes with Chapter 66 onwards, which suggests that the scribe may have copied the text from a defective manuscript. </p>
