W.670, Album of Persian and Indian calligraphy, miniatures, and prints


This is an album, in the form of an accordion book, of Persian and Indian calligraphy and miniatures, as well as two European prints, assembled in the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE. It contains fourteen illustrations, two of which are ascribed to Bihzād (fol. 2b) and Riz̤ā Muṣavvir (fol. 6a). There are also bird and flower paintings attributable to the late Zand or early Qajar periods, as well as late Mughal portrait paintings. There are numerous calligraphy specimens in various Persian scripts, such as Nayrīzī-style naskh, taʿlīq, nastaʿlīq, and shikastah. The majority of these calligraphic compositions (in Persian and Arabic) are signed by Iranian calligraphers of the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE, such as Muḥammad Ṣādiq al-Riḍawī (Riz̤avī), ʿAlī al-Ḥusaynī, Muḥammad ʿAlī, Muḥammad Kāẓim Kulpāykānī (Gulpāygānī), and Muḥammad Kāẓim al-Iṣfahānī.
