Descripción 1955. The Folio Society. 1955. Small slim square 8vo bound in patterned silk, presented in a gold clam shell box. Illustrated with four coloured and gilt miniatures from a then recently discovered manuscript, dated 911 C.E. which was believed to be the earliest Persian Illuminated Manuscript of this poem. The great painter and miniaturist of this period who worked for the Sultan Husayn Bayqara was Bihzad of Herat. The publishers believe at least one of these illustrations is by him and the others of his school as the style is very similar. Fine in a very slightly rubbed gold box with a small patch darkened to rear, and a red paper title piece to front. Nº de ref. de la librería 72894
