Ex-collection Mehdi Bayani.

Catalogue Note

Mehdi Bayani records Ghiyath al-Qasimi as an obscure fifteenth-century scribe and this is his only recorded work.

Several ownership notes and seals are present on the first and last leaves, including one which can be compared to another almost identical on the Kitab al-aghani ('Book of Songs'), now in the Millet Yazma Eser Kutuphanesi, Istanbul (Roxburgh 2005, p.97) and on lot 24 of this current sale.
