<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 volume bears two seal impressions of the Ottoman ruler Sultan Selim II (b. 1524, r. 1566–1574).</p>
