Persian Manuscripts : Niṣāb dar ‘Arabī va Turkī dar Naẓm-i Fārsī


Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This very brief text identified as <i>Niṣāb dar ‘Arabī va Turkī dar Naẓm-i Fārsī</i> (Principles of Arabic and Turkish in Persian Metre) on the first flyleaf, misattributed to Timurid-era poet ‘Abd al-Raḥman Jāmī (1414–1492). Comprised of a Persian introduction and twenty-one <i>qiṭ‘ah</i> (sections), the text presents a variously versified vocabulary of Arabic and Eastern Turkish words with their Persian equivalents. The first section discusses words for God and the Prophet Muḥammad, followed by terms for family members, then proceeds to discuss other terms in either couplets or individual hemistichs. A note on folio <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(7);return false;'>1a</a> describes how it was written in Farrukhabad on 7 Ẕī-al-Qa‘dah in the 9th year of the reign of the Mughal ruler Shāh ‘Ālam II (1182 AH, 15 March 1769 CE).</p>
