Public Notes
The collection of the Brooklyn Museum of Art includes over twenty illustrated folios of dispersed Shahnama manuscripts dated from the early 14th until the 17th century. From the 14th century are five folios from the so-called dispersed "Second Small Shahnama", and one illustration from the Injuid Shahnama commissioned by the vizier Qavvam al-Din. Shiraz style of both 15th and 16th century is apparent in several leaves. From 17th-century Isfahan there are two signed illustrations by Mu'in Musavvir. Among the folios, there are also a few Indian examples from the 16th century.

Visits to the collection were made in November 2008 by Bilha Moor, with kind cooperation and permission of Dr. Ladan Akbarnia. We would also like to thank Ms. Katie Apsie for her assistance during the visits.

Project Notes
Copyright wording to be updated in all the mss and illustration records when Brooklyn CD arrives. Just a few images should be changed where noted (and if provided for the items which are on exhibition). BM

Charles, should I update the details of the museum and give Dr Akbarniya's e-mail? BM

I suppose yes: but we should ask her if she wants to be mentioned by name, or only the relevant dept.

Should I write her an e-mail, or you prefer to ask her when you send over the order list? BM

I'll ask her when I send the order.

NB Ladan has now left. Check contact details and preferred copyright statements: CD of images received from Ruth Jansen, 17 Feb. 2010.
