A manuscript about As-Sufi commissioned by Ulugbek has been returned to Samarkand as a facsimile

The publication has been presented by Firdavs Abdukhalikov, Board Chairman of the World Society for the Study, Preservation and Promotion of the Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan, and Charlotte Kramer, President of the Austrian publishing house Mueller & Schindler.

 

- The manuscript about the astronomer As-Sufi, commissioned by Mirzo Ulugbek, is now kept in the National Library in Paris. It took three years for the publishing house Mueller&Schindler to create a facsimile edition of the manuscript, - said Abdukhalikov.

 

The gem of the book is the miniature depicting Mirzo Ulugbek in the form of the Cepheus constellation. The inscriptions in gold ink and other signs prove that the document belonged to Mirzo Ulugbek's library. Scientists believe that the Book of Fixed Stars was used by scientists when writing astronomical tables.

 

- We are very proud that we have managed to bring Mirzo Ulugbek back home to Samarkand, where his observatory is located. We spent three years, but are very happy with the work done, as it is our mission  to recreate the masterpieces of Central Asia, scattered around the world, - said Charlotte Kramer.
