THE ECKSTEIN SHAHNAMA: An Ottoman Book of Kings
Completed in the last quarter of the sixteenth century, the lavishly illuminated and illustrated Ottoman copy of Firdausi's epic poem draws on the Persian tradition of manuscript illustration. This study of the manuscript shows how the Ottomans succeeded in imbuing Iranian cultural models with their own distinctly Ottoman flavor. Import.
