Public Notes
The library of the Oriental Institute of the Tajikistan Academy of Sciences holds four manuscripts of the Shahnama and previously held a fifth, which was transferred to the Firdausi Library. One of the copies is a rare translation in Turkic verse, with an extensive but uncompleted illustration scheme (no. 1032); another is heavily damaged and with only half its cover, unillustrated (no. 1435); an early seventeenth-century copy is also unillustrated, but with some illuminated unvans (no. 794), while the fourth contains three paintings (no. 793). The manuscripts all require some conservation work. The head of the Manuscript Department is Dr Amriyazdon Alimardonov.
