<p style='text-align: justify;'> This undated, complete copy of the <i>Taẕkirat al-Shuʻarā</i> (Chronicles of Poets) by Dawlatshāh Samarqandī (d. ca. 1494) contains biographical accounts of some 150 poets, together with selections of their works. The author hailed from a ruling Timurid-era elite family and dedicated this work to the cultural and political figure Mīr ‘Alī Shīr Navā'ī (d. 1501). Probably completed in India, a Scottish bookbinder named Robert MacCulloch (fl. 1827–1834) either bound or rebound this volume at his firm in Mirzapore, Calcutta (Kolkata). </p>
