This is an illuminated and illustrated Safavid copy of the collected works (Kulliyāt) of Saʿdī (d. 691 AH / 1292 CE). It was written by ʿAbd Allāh ibn Shaykh Murshid al-Kātib in the tenth century AH / sixteenth CE. The manuscript opens with an illuminated medallion (fol. 2a), followed by a double-page illustrated frontispeice (fols. 2b-3a) and a double-page illuminated frontispiece (fols. 3b-4a). The text is illustrated with seven additional paintings (fols. 18a, 31b, 49b, 70b, 88a, 101a, and 106b). The brown leather binding is incorrectly bound with the flap appearing on the right side instead of the left.
