About this title

From Library Journal:

Suleiman, the great sultan who reigned (1520-66) over the Ottoman Empire's greatest expansion, is commemorated in this beautiful facsimile edition of the early illustrated manuscript now housed in the Topkapi Palace Museum, Istanbul. The volume completed Arif Celebi's five-part official history of the Ottoman dynasty in Persian verse. Five imperial court painters illustrated Suleiman's life and achievements in 65 scenes. Reproduced here, resplendent with gold, are their renderings of battles, receptions, hunts, and sieges. Atil carefully describes the artistic production and binding of the manuscript, as well as its political, historical, and cultural significance. Essays, text accompaning each plate, indexes, and appendixes provide many points of access to the contents of the Suleymanname. For art, history of the book, and Asian history collections.
