Persian Manuscripts : Taz̲kirat al-Shuʻarā' min Taṣnīf-i Ṭāhir

Naṣrābādī, Muḥammad Ṭāhir‏محمد طاهر نصرابادی

Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> Muḥammad Ṭāhir‏ Naṣrābādī (1618–?) originally completed his <i>Taz̲kirat al-Shuʻarā'</i> (Chronicle of Poets), also known as the <i>Taz̲kira-yi Naṣrābādī</i> (Naṣrābādī's Chronicle), in Isfahan in 1680 CE. This comprehensive work documents Persianate rulers, elites, scholars, and literary figures, including a thousand poets. Considered a preeminent source on Iran and India in the 16th to 17th centuries, it casts valuable light upon the culture of Isfahan during the author's lifetime. An unidentified scribe completed manuscript in 1105 AH (1693 CE), just thirteen years after the original; however, the entries vary and also omit several names, while adding an addendum on the poets of Yazd not found in in comparison to other redactions and printed editions.</p>
