The scribe ‘Abd al-Rahim ibn ‘Abd al-Rahman al-Khwarazmi is recorded as a companion of Sultan Ya’qub Aq Qoyunlu, who called him Anisi which ‘Abd al-Rahim took on as his pen-name. He signed his works as Anisi, Ya’qubi and Al-Sultani. After Ya’qub’s death, he worked for his son Rustam and signed his work as ‘Abd al-Rahim Rustami. His recorded works are dated between 864 AH/1459-60 AD and 899 AH/1493-94 AD (Mehdi Bayani, ahval va athar-e khosh-navisan, vol.II, 1346 sh, pp.384-8; Minorsky, Calligraphers and Painters, Washington, 1959, pp.100-1).
