During the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century, the Nawwabs of Rampur, the hereditary rulers of Rohilkha??, a district some 75 km, east of New Delhi, amassed a large collection of books and art, including illustrated books and album paintings. Their collection was given to the people of India after independence.The Raza Library at Rampur thus possesses a remarkable collection of Mughal and Persian paintings and illustrated books. This includes miniatures from the great Jaha?girnama, considered by many as the greatest of all Mughal .illustrated manuscripts. The Raza Library holdings of the Akbar period are equally distinguished including a work on astrology Tarjama-i Sirr al-maktum and a Diwan-i Hafi?"?- with eleven miniatures by Akbar's best court artists painted in Lahore about 1585, published here with much new scholarship. A painting of the aging Jaha?gir at the jharokha and many other portraits of the seventeenth-nineteenth centuries will come as wonderful surprises to those interested in Indian art throughout the world.Most of the miniatures (some 4,000 in number) and the contents of thirty-five albums of paintings.Printed Pages: 276 with 330 illustrations.
