Khamseh Nizami-Bayqara

One of the best loved of the illustrated Persian manuscripts in the British Library is the Khamseh of Nizami (‘Five Poems’). Made in Herat during the reign of Sultan Husayn Bayqara, and with one picture dated 900/1494-95, it contains some of the finest late 15th-century painting. - There are two copies in the British Library!
