Collection of poems &x28;divan&x29;, Double-page illustrated frontispiece depicting a court scene, Walters Art Museum Ms. W.628,

This is an illuminated and illustrated manuscript copy of the Collection of poems (dīvān) by Shams al-Dīn Muḥammad Ḥāfiz al-Shīrāzī (fl. eighth century AH / fourteenth CE). It was written in black nasta‘līq script with chapter/section headings in gold ink by Zayn al-‘Ābidīn ‘Abd al-Raḥmān al-Jāmī in 918 AH / 1512 CE in Safavid Iran. The manuscript opens with an illuminated medallion (fol. 1a), followed by a double-page illustrated frontispiece (fols. 1b-2a). The text begins with an incipit page with illuminated headpiece (fol. 2b). There are three additional illustrations (fols. 24a, 49b, and 87a). The red leather binding, which is not original and may be attributed to late twelfth-century AH / eighteenth CE or thirteenth-century AH / nineteenth CE Turkey, has a scalloped medallion with gold-tooled decoration and borders. This is the left side of a double-page illustrated frontispiece, showing a falconer and four other attendants waiting in an outside courtyard.
