Die Indischen Miniaturen des Haemzae-Romanes: Im Österreichischen Museum für Kunst und Industrie in Wien und in Anderen Sammlungen
by Gluck, Heinrich
1925. 155 pp. text on the early Mughal paintings illustrating the Hamzanama or tale of Hamza, dispersed to the Osterreichischen Museum, Vienna, the Victoria and Albert Museum and other collections, bibliographic notes, index, 48 tipped-in text illustrations, 50 full-page plates (some in brilliant colors) of the paintings. Some scattered foxing. Large folio. Vellum with gilt-stamped spine. Zurich (Amalthea) 1925. (Arbeiten des I. Kunst Institutes, 26). The Hamzanama narrates the exploits of Hamza bin Azrak, full of fanciful tales including romantic interludes, narrow escapes, and brushes with violence. The story is best-known in the west for the illustrated manuscript commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Akbar circa 1562. This volume is a scholarly, beautifully printed and lavish work on this important manuscript. (Inventory #: 39183)
