Summary

Description
English: Binding of a Divan of Hafiz, April 5 1842, Iran. "Original lacquer “gul-u-bulbul” (flower-nightingale) motif with gold, red, and black decorative frame... The metaphorical relationship of the nightingale (active lover) and flower (passive beloved) frequently utilized in Persian poetry, especially by Hafiz, thus serves as an appropriate theme for the binding covering this manuscript."
