Summary

Selections from the first and second volume of Iqbālnāmah-ʼi Jahāngīrī. This copy contains parts of a history of Emperor Akbar and his father. The first two leaves of this volume are bound out of order and begin with the year 13 of Akbar's reign before returning to a portion of his father's rule followed by an account of Akbar's birth and ascension to the throne; the work ends abruptly in the ninth year of Akbar's rule. The final page is pasted over another written page. The work includes 29 illustrations in mixed media, some of which are incomplete and many of which have had names and comments added to them; some of the illustrations also have added pasted-on embellishments or corrections to the drawing (see f. 25v, for example).
