Summary

Genealogical tables of the Prophets, followed by Eastern and Persian dynasties up to Fatḥ-ʻAlī Shah of the Qajar dynasty. The author says this work is based on an abridged Turkish translation he saw of a Persian text by Yūsuf ibn ʻAbd al-Laṭīf called Tavārīkh va siyar-i anbiyā va akhbār-i sulūk-i mulūk. Since the Persian had been lost, but the Turkish text was recognized as being a translation from Persian, it was decided to translate it back into Persian (f. 1v). The copy then seems to have been expanded to include up to the second Qajar ruler.

Layout

  • Numerous sets of two concentric circles with a name written inside the interior circle and color filled in between the two circles connected by lines to other circle-sets. Text appears at angles among the circles. The first two pages are introductory material written diagonally, f. 1v is fully written and f. 2r is written in a 150 x 130 mm box.
  • Decoration

    Each page-opening is frame-ruled in green. Rubrications in red. Circles are chiefly either blue or green, but also include orange and closer to the end of the work, red, silver, pink, and yellow. A few circles contain more than one color (f. 36rv-38r, for example). The colored portion of the circle is also sometimes decorated with gold zigzag patterns. Red lines connect the circles and extend over the page frame-rule. The last opening (f. 42v-43r) includes Fatḥ-ʻAlī Shah's name set into an elaborate gold and red circle with a crown on top, surrounded by the names of his sons, in silver, and grandsons in pink, and yellow circles.
