Public Notes
The Collection contains four folios from the 1341 Inju Shahnama, and four bound codices. There is also a copy of the Tavakkol Beg's Dilgusha-yi Shamshirkhani. The manuscripts are digitised almost in their entirety thanks to a remarkable project at the Walters, and can be found on the following link: http://thedigitalwalters.org

The images are taken from this website under the "Creative commons" licence; the descriptions are based on work previously undertaken on visits to the Museum, most recently by ChM in November 2008, and with the kind assistance of Dr Shreve Simpson.

Project Notes
'Final' Visit by ChM, 3-4 November 2008. Digitization of the mss. in progress and there's a commitment to putting them on line free in due course.
