Binding from Collected Works (Kulliyat)


Description Provenance Credit
Description This non-original binding from Walters manuscript W.618 is largely attributable to the 10th century AH/AD 16th, with later additions. The binding is composed of brown leather (incorrectly bound with the flap on the wrong side and folded back on itself), and has a central lobed oval and pendants with gold-brushed scroll and floral design. The binding has a blue outer margin.
Provenance Private collection, Tehran [date and mode of acquisition unknown] [list of books, by an anonymous owner, which were in his house in Tehran on fol. 1b]; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
