"A New Manuscript of the Shahriyarnama attributed to Mukhtari of Ghazna from the Collection of the Ancient India and Iran Trust"

Abstract : The paper identifies and analyses a previously unknown manuscript of the "Shahriyarnama", a rare Persian epic poem belonging to the Firdawsi's Shahnama secondary-epics cycle, the authorship of which is attributed to the poet Mukhtari of Ghazna (fl. 11th/12th century CE). The manuscript is housed at the library of the Ancient India and Iran Trust in Cambridge (UK). Only two other copies of this poem are known to exist today—and both are fragmentary—one in London and the other in Dushanbe, while the present manuscript is complete. All three copies are late, dating between 17th and 19th centuries. The first part of the paper outlines the history of the Cambridge manuscript, proposes some textual analyses, and examines it's relationship to the two other copies. The following part focuses on the issue of transmission of the Shahnama-cycle in post-Timurid period (after 1506), and discusses the traces of an editorial tradition which can be identified in relation with the studied manuscripts.
