W.676, Six leaves from Majma` al-tavarikh by Hafiz Abru


These six leaves come from a historical Timurid work entitled Majmaʿ al-tavārīkh (Collection of chronicles) by Ḥāfiẓ-i Abrū (d. 833 AH / 1430 CE), that was copied and illustrated around 829 AH / 1425 CE. Two known Timurid illustrated copies of Majmaʿ al-tavārīkh from the ninth century AH / fifteenth CE are the dispersed manuscript previously in the collection of Emile Tabbagh and Parish Watson (ca. 829 AH / 1425 CE) and a copy dated 829 AH / 1425 CE (Istanbul, H.1653). The Walters' leaves come from the former. The text is written in naskh script in black, red, and reddish-brown ink; chapter headings are written in tawqīʿ script in red ink.
