Summary

Endowment (waqf) document by Shāh Sulṭān Ḥusayn Ṣafavī (r. 1694-1721) for the establishment of a funeral parlor for washing and preparing bodies for burial for the poor of Iṣfahān. The first page of the work is missing; it begins now with what would likely have been the second of a dual-page illuminated first opening. When the work was rebound, each leaf was tipped to a stub with a blank leaf inserted between them. The waqf was transcribed in 1118 A.H. (1706) (f. 18v), though the Sultan's stamp is dated 1125 A.H. (1713) (f. 20r ). Four witness stamps are found in the lower left of each recto, with the exception of the leaf with the Sultan's stamp. Three items describing the manuscript and interpreting the endowment as the manuscript itself, rather than the building it seeks to establish, tipped in at the end.
