Yusuf and Zulaikha by Jami (1414-1492)

This manuscript tells the story of Yusuf and Zulaikha and is beautifully illustrated throughout. It was originally in the library of Ali Murad Talpur, the second ruler of the Mankani Talpurs of Mirpur Khas (Sindh). Subsequently, it was acquired by book collector Lawrence Strangman, an alumnus of Trinity Hall, and given to the College in his memory in the late 1980s by his niece Geraldine Essayan.
