Mojmal al-Tawarikh wa al-Qasas (مُجمل التواریخ و القصص) was a book written in Persia in 1126 CE by an unknown author. The title means "The Collection of histories and Tales".
The book is a chronicle mostly of Persian Kings, and is often cited as a source of reference for historical events of the 12th century and before. It refers to the Shahnameh, a mythical and to some extent an historical past of (Greater) Iran, as the "tree" and all other poems as branches.
Some authors have claimed the name of the author to be Ibn Shadi Asad abadi (ابن شادی اسدآبادی).
Another book by the same name was written by Fasihuddin Ahmad in 1441.
