Shāhnāma and Other Manuscripts Calligraphed by Ādina Kāteb Bokhāri in Late 16th -Early 17th Century.

Abstract : This short paper contributes to a larger field of text and skill transmission, as exemplified by editorial traditions linked to the Shāhnāma circulation in the Early Modern Central Asia. The analysis of the callligraphic work of a Bukharan professional known as Ādina Kāteb Bokhāri (end 15th/early 16th century) shows that he clearly specialized in the production of good quality copies of Persian literary texts, and especially the Shāhnāma epics. It also gives some insight into the organisation and circumstances of book production linked to professional copy work-shops. The study of manuscript volumes signed by Ādina also brings to light such issues as specialisation, collaborative scribal work, larger editorial projects, but also literary trends and readership of literary texts.
