Description

Property from an Important Private Collection

Kitab fadail al-anam,

Safavid Iran, 17th century

The corners and edges are scuffed overall. Smudges and staining can be noticed through the manuscript. The smudging and staining does affect the text panels. One panel badly affected with some words rendered illegible on four lines. Some minimal and very occasional losses to some part of words, perhaps corrections, sometimes showing in the form of white blotches. At least three folios with modern purple ink or pencil strokes. One folio with a double strike affecting the text panel. Another with some partially and badly erased - maybe with a damp rubber ? - doodles in the upper margins. Another with its panel stroke through vertically. The two first bi folios are weak with losses and tears to edges and corners and extensive staining. The first two folios were detached and are now patched back to the text block. The first fifty folios (approx.) showing large brown stain affecting the text panel. The last fourth of this manuscript shows some water staining to the upper and marginal sections of the folios and to the lower parts near the gutter. The last folio shows some traces of glue to its left marginal area. The front and back cover are scuffed and n places are becoming detached from the spine.
