<p style='text-align: justify;'> An undated <i>Nigāristān</i> (Picture Gallery) composed by Kemalpaşazade, (1468–1534), also known as Ibn Kemāl, in 939 AH (1532–33 CE), about a year before his death. It features both prose and poetry that emulates the <i>Gulistān</i> (Rose-garden) of Sa'dī, as well as elements of the <i>Bahāristān</i> of Jāmī. It contains a preface, followed by eight chapters on the topics of kingship, morals, contentment, silence, love in youth, weakness in old age, the effects of education, and lastly, a compilation of proverbs on related topics, all interspersed with stories concerning historical figures. While undated, the physical features of this volume suggest it could be a fairly early 16th-century copy, which seems to contain variant lines in comparison to other volumes.</p>
