The Shah Jahan nama of 'Inayat Khan: an abridged history of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, compiled by his royal librarian : the nineteenth-century manuscript translation of A.R. Fuller (British Library, add. 30,777)
Oxford University Press, 1990 - Biography & Autobiography - 624 pages
This is the first complete English translation of a seventeenth-century Persian history of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal. Between 1628 and 1658 Shah Jahan ruled an extensive empire that stretched from Afghanistan in the west to Assam in the east. His reign has been relatively neglected in the historiography of medieval India, partly because of the inaccessibility of Persian source material and the scarcity of English translations. Richly illustrated with color plates of seventeenth-century Mughal paintings from the famous Windsor Castle manuscript of the Padshah Nama, this monumental volume will be an indipensable source for all future work on Mughal India.
