Public Notes
Titley, Miniatures from Persian manuscripts, 1977, p. 43, describes this as a Mughal ms. of the late 17th or early 18th century.

An interpolation of the Barzunama (ff. 203r-233v), incorporating a Susannama (ff. 227v-233r), is inserted following the story of Bizhan and Manizha. The last scenes illustrated are from the reign of Gushtasp.
