Footnotes

Sultan 'Ali al-Mashhadi, the well-known nasta'liq scribe who worked at the court of Husayn Mirza Bayqara in Herat and held the title Royal Scribe (katib al-sultani). A few years after the invasion of Herat by the Uzbaks 'Ubaydullah Khan, he returned to his hometown Mashahd, where he died in 926 (1519-20). His numerous recorded works, including inscriptions in Herat are dated between 849 (1444-5) and 921 (1515-16). This album page must date to pre capture of Herat by the Uzbaks. (Mehdi Bayani, ahval va asar-e khosh-nevisan, vol. I, Teheran, 1345 sh., pp. 241-66)
