"...one of the most important illustrated manuscripts produced for the Mughal emperor Akbar: a copy of the Khamsah (quintet) of Niẓāmī Ganjavī (d. 605 AH / 1209 CE) copied by the royal scribe ʿAbd al-Raḥīm ʿAmbarīn Qalam in the fortieth year of Akbar's reign (1004 AH / 1595 CE). It was most likely executed in Lahore. The larger portion of the manuscript, preserved with the colophon, date, and scribe’s name, is housed in the British Library (Or. MS 12208). The Walters fragment contains parts of Khusraw va Shīrīn and Iskandarnāmah, with five illustrations", one of which is a double spread, as MS W 613. Walters Art Museum
