Public Notes
The Salar Jung Museum and Manuscripts Library holds a significant collection of copies of the Shahnama, manily from the 17th century. These are quite fully catalogued in A Concise descriptive catalaogue of the Persian manuscripts in the Salar Jung Museum and Library, compiled by Muhammad Ashraf, vol. IV (Hyderababd, 1967), pp. 1-16.
Project Notes
Need all details, including confirmation of copyright wording.

First six mss. seen by AF in Feb. 2009, and pictures obtained. Details of ms. and pictures still to be completed; last two mss. added after AF's visit: need all details, including images.

Visited by Bilha Moor later in 2009, who obtained most of the remaining photos.

Charles, I asked Dr. Kausar about the copyright wording, and edited it accordingly in the Museum Record. BM

Visited in January 2012 by FA and ChM, for a day, to collect missing images and see the Shamshirkhani ms. not seen by the previous researchers. Great help from the curator of the manuscripts library, Dr A.S.Kausar.

Need to check with Dr Reddy re. contact details and further collaborations.
