The Shahnamah of Firdausi produced for the Timurid Muhammad Juki (a grandson of Timur) in the 1440s is one of the finest surviving Persian manuscripts produced between the heyday of Baysunghur’s academy in Herat and the appearance of Bihzad.

This monograph written by Dr. Barbara Brend is the first complete study of the manuscript and provides a detailed analysis of the cycle of illustrations; a commentary on the Mughal notes by A.H. Morton which offer telling insights into the practices of the Mughal Library. ( The Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland/ Philip Wilson Pub., 2010, Hardcover, 214 pp, color illus)
