Public Notes
This ms. was brought from the Negarestan Museum after the Revolution. The Accesstion number at Negarestan was 61; it was later given a new number later: 73-1. The Reza Abbasi Museum is evidently intending to renumber all of the Negarestan collection, and the current number will probably change. The ms is in urgent need of rebinding; folios are mostly detached, and the pictures have signs of paint damage. The green pigment has eaten into the paper. This manuscript is undated. (A.M.)

The text is paginated with continuous page numbers (1260 pp.), 630 folios. It begins without a prose preface and is divided into four daftars, each headed by a sarlauh (pp. 1, 347, 689, 1009). (Ch.M.).

For a detailed description of the manuscript and its illustrations, see S.A. Sharifzadeh, Namvarnama, Tehran, 1370sh/1991, pp. 194-207.
