Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> An incomplete <i>Dīvān-i Sanāʼī</i> by Ḥusayn ibn Muḥammad S̲anaʼī Mashhadī (d. ca. 1587), possibly completed in the 18th to mid-19th century. Originally from Mashhad in Iran, the poet travelled to India where he attained favour under the Mughal ruler Akbar and also critically edited the poems of Abū al-Fayz̤ ibn Mubārak, (d. 1595), pen named Fayz̤ī. This volume contains three sections featuring odes (<i>qaṣā'id</i>), lyric poems (<i>ghazaliyāt</i>), followed by fragments and quatrains (<i>qiṭ‘āt va rubā‘īyāt</i>), but then unfortunately lacks the very end.</p>
