Royal Decrees, Divans and Qur’an on Exhibit

Ancient manuscripts and documents are on display at the pavilion of the National Library and Archives at Tehran International Book Fair underway at the Imam Khomeini Mosalla.
Among the documents is a decree issued by former king Nader Shah Afshar (1688-1747). As per the order, the governorate of Yazd was given to Mirza Hassan, a former military commander of Natanz County, Isfahan Province. In the order Mirza Hassan was told to be kind to the peasants, collect taxes and punish rebels and criminals. 
The royal order is written on fine cloth and has one-sided margin illuminations depicting grapevines. According to a note placed next to the order, it was written on August 3, 1742. 
Nader Shah Afshar was one of the most powerful Iranian rulers who ruled as Shah of Persia from 1736 to 1747. He was assassinated during a rebellion.
