Public Notes
Several folios of a 16th-century Safavid manuscript.
Project Notes
Certain things to clarify here. Date is given as 970 AH (?). There is a bi-folio (finispiece - 14.691) and a single folio (14.692), yet the entry records 8 folios in the MS. it is also possible that 14.633 belongs to this group (similar dimensions, similar date range).

Measurements vary: according to the Museum notes, 691 is 480x334 and 692 is 493x335.

The calligrapher of both pages is identified as Muhammad al-Qavam Shirazi and Taj al-Din Haidar. See colophon: need image of reverse sides.
