This manuscript is signed by a member of the renowned al‑Khwarazmi family of calligraphers, patronized by both Qara Quyunlu and Aq Quyunlu rulers in the cities of Baghdad, Shiraz, and Tabriz in the fifteenth century. 'Abd al-Karim al-Khwarazmi copied this collection of poetry by the popular contemporary poet Jami (d. 1492). Aq Quyunlu rulers much admired the work of this poet, who dedicated one of his works to the Aq Quyunlu sultan Ya'qub and his brother Yusuf.
