Written and illuminated in Persia in 1243 AH (1827-28 AD) for a wealthy and influential parton, and passing a few decades later into the library of Shahzadeh Khanlar Mirza, formally known as ‘Ehtesham-ed-dowleh’: additional colophon dated 1270 AH (1853-54 AD) and with his official seal.

Offered by E. Rossignol of Paris c.1920: faded orange sale ticket loose in volume. Text: Born in Shiraz in 1210 AD, Sa’di is one of the most revered poetic and prose writers of the classical form in Persian history whose complete works, or Kolliyat, are here present. This opulently illuminated copy of the Golestan, or ‘Rose Garden’, [dated 14th Jumada al-thani 1242 AH (13th January 1827 AD)], is arguably Sa’di’s most influential collection of poems and short stories. It survives here in its contemporary painted binding with portraits most probably of the author on his travels, each the full height and width of the book. Other included works are the Bostan (Orchard) being the author’s first work concerning anecdoes and reflections on human psychology written during his travels, as well as an extensive collection of his Qasa'id: (Odes) and Ghazaliyat (lyrics).
