Persian Miniatures from the Baburama: Six Original Paintings
Persia: Unpublished, 1875 Book. Near Fine. No Binding. 1st Edition. (8x14.5cm) Six Persian miniatures, apparently retelling the Barburama, the life story of Emperor Babur, founder of the Moghul dynasty. Each of the leaves is 11x17.5cm with an inset tempera painting set within a triple red frame (8x14.5cm). Overleaf, manuscript in Farsi written in black ink with red ink underlining. Condition: a couple of wormholes to margins and on the verso, mounting tape running along the head of the manuscript pages. Excellent bright images. Probably dating from the mid nineteenth century Christian era. This identification must be tentative but these images appear to correspond to the following episodes in the standard version of the Babur's life, the Barburama: 2 Babur being entertained in Ghazni 4 Babur and his party hunting for rhinoceros in Swati 5 Babur encounters an old woman 6 Awards ceremony at Sultan Ibrahim's court before being sent on an expedition to Sambhal - or perhaps ?amzah Sul?an, Mahdi Sul?an and Mamaq Sul?an pay homage to Babur. A drummer, musicians and a dancing girl are all depicted. 7 Babur hunting dogs 8 Sultan Mu?ammad Vays offers Babur a healthy horse to replace his ailing one.
