Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A complete copy of the <i>Bahāristān</i> (Spring Garden), originally composed by Timurid court poet and renowned Sufi ‘Abd al-Raḥman Jāmī (1414–1492) in 892 AH (1487 CE). Modelled upon the <i>Gulistān</i> (Rose Garden) of Saʻdī, he divided the work into eight chapters or 'gardens' (<i>rawz̤ah</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 Bosnian scribe, Muḥammad al-Busnavī completed this manuscript, probably in the Ottoman empire, on end of Ẕī-al-Qa‘dah 975 AH (early June 1568 CE). </p>
