Public Notes
The ROM collection contains one 15th-century codex of the Shahnama and several detached sheets, presenting a wide spectrum of styles and periods. The documentation includes black & white photos of each painting and data compiled by Dr Lisa Golombek, former curator of the Middle East collections. The collection was made available for inspection (30 July 2008) by the current curator, Dr Karin Ruehrdanz, to whom we are much indebted for her assistance and trouble. The codex was on exhibition at the time of this visit. For copies of the illustrations, requests should be made to Nicola Woods, Rights & Reproduction Coordinator (tel: 416-586-5590, fax: 416-586-5642, email: images@rom.on.ca), or online at http://images.rom.on.ca/public/

One of the pages initially identified as a Shahnama folio was subsequently identified (by KR) as Nizami's Iskandarnama (no. 938.39.3) - retained here for the record.

Project Notes
We ordered quite a few pictures also of the reverse of the paintings, as sample pages etc. These should also be processed and added where applicable (Manuscript records).

April 2011. Sample pages added. In some cases, still need to check whether the text side is recto or verso - Museum systematically records the page with the painting as recto and the page with text as verso.

Some lines still to check and notes to complete.
