Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Timurid court poet and renowned Sufi ‘Abd al-Raḥman Jāmī (1414–1492) originally composed the <i>Bahāristān</i> (Spring Garden) in 892 AH (1487 CE). Modelled upon the <i>Gulistān</i> (Rose Garden) of Saʻdī, he divided it into eight chapters or 'gardens' (<i>rawżah</i>) devoted to Sufi saints and philosophers, the topics of justice, generosity, love, and comedy, as well as a highly esteemed section on poetic literature, and the last regarding animals. A scribe named Rawshan completed this volume in 1202 AH (1788 CE), in conjunction with the "<i>jūbilī-i Firangī</i>", or the centenary of the Glorious Revolution in 1688. </p>
