Abstract:

Leaves from 2 different Persian manuscripts of uncertain date and origin, each with an illumination. On the verso of one, a man and woman share a throne on a veranda, surrounded by nine musicians; the recto of this leaf has 8 lines of main text, with interlinear notes and surrounding commentary in a smaller script. On the other, a scene of a man kneeling at the mouth of a cave with another man kneeling before him is enclosed in a rondel; this illumination may be painted over text on the page. The other side of this leaf is written in 12 long lines.
