The Museum has a rich collection of manuscripts among other aspects of Islamic art (metalwork, ceramics, jewellry, costumes, coins), including a large number of illuminated Qur'ans. It also contains many illustrated Persian manuscripts and single folios, many of which are not identified as belonging to the Shahnama; among others are copies of Nizami's Khamsa, and especially the Iskandarnama, and the Tutinama.
A brief illustrated handlist of miniature paintings from India was produced in 2003 to accompany an exhibition, see "Early Persian paintings and miniatures" (text by Marcus Fraser).
Existing notes need extensively updating. At present, it seems none of the Shahnama folios or pages has any reference or accession number.

Almost certainly not the same as 'unnamed location'? See email from J.J. Witkam.
