Works written in the time of a passionate falconer Jalal al-din Akbar of the Baburid Dynasty

The collection of manuscripts on vetinary medicine of The al-Biruni Institute of Oriental Studies of the Academy of Sciences includes manuscripts of works on hippology, the treatment of birds and hunting (a total of 49 units).

“Baz-nama” (The Book about a Falcon) manuscripts dominate in number, and there are several works written in the time of Jalal al-din Akbar of the Baburid Dynasty, who was a passionate falconer.

“Shikar-nama” is similar in content to “Baz-nama”, the book about hunting. The manuscripts include colorful copies illuminated with miniatures, such as “Shikar-nama-i Ilkhani” (The Book of llkhan’s Hunting) by Ali ibn al-Mansur al-Hawafi (14th century), and “Kitab-i saydiya” (The Book of Hunting) by Shaykh al-Islam al-Harawi al-Samarqandi (16th century) compiled for the Sultan Badi ‘al-Zaman. The earliest of its seven folios dates from 1553.
