Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript contains the <i>Risālah dar Ṣaydīyah</i>, a treatise on hunting and hunting-animals, an alphabetically arranged treatise on the legality of eating certain animals according to the Shāfiʿī legal school. A second unrelated text follows, entitled <i>Risālah dar Ḥāl-i Javāhirāt va Ta's̲īrāt-i Ānhā</i> (Treatise on the Condition of Jewels and Their Effects), on the properties of precious stones, in twelve chapters. An anonymous Mughal-era scribe completed both texts in Nagina, Bijnor District, in the Ẕī-al-Ḥijjah 1134 AH (Sept. 1722 CE) during the 5th year of the reign of the Emperor Muḥammad Shāh (b. 1702, r. 1719–1748). </p>
