Catalogue Note

This manuscript of genealogical tables starts with Adam, and traces the Prophet Muhammad and his descendants, the rulers of Persia, the Ottoman sultans (ending with Ahmed III, r.1703-30), and the Qadirite Sufis. The final date given is 1127 AH/1715 AD, although the later roundel giving the name of Sultan Mahmud I and the date 1135 AH/1722 AD, may have been added by a later owner.
