The Special Collections of the Deering Library holds two Shahnama manuscripts and a couple of loose leaves, which used to form part of a single manuscript.
Visits to the collection were made in September-November 2014 by Bilha Moor, when all photos were obtained and manuscripts paginated. Lines also checked by BM.
We wish to warmly thank the curator of the Special Collections, Mr Scott Krafft, for his kind cooperation and permission to study the manuscripts. We are also indebted to manuscript librarian, Mr Benn Joseph, and library assistants Mrs Susan Lewis, Mrs Sigrid Perry, and Mr Nick Munagian for their friendly assistance.
One or two Shahnamas and a few loose folios identified by Bilha Moor, 23 October 2014. To pursue.
