Public Notes
Three detached leaves of a dispersed Shahnama (pp.163, 165, cat. no. 220-222). Rachel Milstein notes that the style of the painting as well as the layout of the page and handwriting are similar to two other manuscripts kept at the British Library (Ta'rikh Shahjahan Add. 20734, cat. no. 271, and 'Amal al-Salik Add. 20735, cat. no. 281).

She also referes to another similar Shahnama manuscipt kept at The Free Library of Philadelphia (Lewis O.55). M. A. Simsar suggested that it was made for Sultan Muhammad Shah (reigned 1719-1748).

(The dimesnions of the page and the text are based on folio 559.69)
