Public Notes
The Minassian collection, bequeathed to Brown in 19 , normally housed in the John Hay Library, is currently (April 2014) accessible at the next door John D. Rockefeller Jr Library, and partly in storage, during renovations.The present entry is thus a holding page until the details of the official location of the collection are confirmed.
Project Notes
Introduced by Elaheh Kheirandish at Harvard, and visited by ChM and FA on 28 April 2014, for a preliminary assessment of the collection.

Great assistance from Dr Ian Straughn, curator of the collection; preliminary catalogue of the illustrated folios exists, produced by Allana M. Benham in 1999. Many pictures left unidentified; some not identified as Shahnama pages, others wrongly associated with the epic.

All images are digitized by the Library. Need copyright statement and formal permission to upload pictures.

Need also to confirm how to identify the folios, currently recorded with i-number.
