Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A rare collection of <i>Inshā'</i> (ornate prose) correspondence primarily exchanged or received by the Deccan Sultanate ruler Ibrāhīm Qutb Shah (b. 1518, r. 1550–1580), with other rulers and elites. Compiled by one Muḥammad Qāsim Tabasī, probably in the early 17th century, this undated and unsigned manuscript, probably completed in the Indian subcontinent, contains a seal impression dated regnal year ‘Ālamgīri 36 (1 Ramaz̤ān 1103–29 Sha‘bān 1104 AH / 17 May 1692–5 May 1693 CE), so it may date relatively soon after the work's completion.</p>
