Miscellaneous Literature book
I n the preceding chapters, we have attempted a fairly comprehensive survey of the two major and outstanding forms of literary activity in Persian during the period under our review, viz., poetry and its varieties, and history. But besides these two branches of literature, a considerable bulk of literary output has been produced in the Deccan under the patronage of the various Sultanates and in the descriptive catalogues of the collections of rare and valuable Persian manuscripts in India and abroad, we come across short notices of a number of such works. Some of them which were easily accessible to the present writer in the libraries at Hyderabad and Bombay have been consulted and briefly reviewed in the following pages; while others have been merely referred to on the authority of the information available about them in the Descriptive Catalogues.
