    (122 items)

    The items I display here, found in NYC's South Bronx about 6 months ago, were found in a storage unit in New Jersey.

    I have made several attempts to determine the orgin, meanings, date and or meaning of the text.

    There is approximately; fifty plus two sided framed pages of what I believe to be antique manuscripts.
    That bring said, these pages are very brital, written in black and red texts as well as outlined in triple colors.

    I have been given several interpretations as to what these pages are.

    The most recent is that it is a fourteenth century manuscript of a Persian national epic, created in India for the Islamic ruler of the time.

    I seeking any and all information pertaining to these manuscripts.
    That being said, I welcome information that anyone may have.
    It is my wish to preserve rather than the destroy the documents.

      That looks like middle eastern. Possibly Turkish or Arabic. The bottom is to the right.

      Just looking on line at antique Burmese text, it seems to have a lot of "o" shapes, and this has a lot of "u" shapes, maybe slight but that's what I noticed. Hope it helps! :^)
    11. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 6 years ago
      Yes the antique Persian text looks more like it, also on line! :^)
