The Khalili Collections comprise eight distinct art collections assembled by Nasser D. Khalili over five decades. Together, the collections include some 35,000 works of art, and each is considered among the most important in its field. Among these are the largest private collection of Islamic art, with 28,000 items including 2,000 ceramics and 600 items of jewellery.

Khalili Collection of Islamic Art is remarkable in that it combines both these traditions within an overall scheme. Similar sequences have been assembled for painting and the decorative arts. Yet, the wealth of important objects and manuscripts from later periods in the Collection shows that much art worthy of our attention on aesthetic as well as historical and intellectual grounds was produced in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

This, the second volume of the catalogue of the rare books and miniatures in the Khalili Collection, is devoted to painting in India under the Mughals. The material presented here ranges in date from the late 16th to the late 19th centuries and comprises 76 illustrated manuscripts, album pages and detached miniatures, many of which were commissioned by the Mughal emperors. These include a page from Akbar's monumental Hamzah-namah; two folios from the Ramayana commissioned by Akbar for his mother; a page from the Padshahnamah prepared for Shah Jahan; a Khamsah prepared for Aurangzeb; and a painting of the dynastic line from Timur to Aurangzeb. Librarians' notations on others indicate that they were kept in the royal libraries for generations, and a group of miniatures bears the inventory numbers of the Mewar Collection. Pride of place among the large group of Deccani paintings goes to one of the few complete copies of the Falnamah or 'Book of Divination', which has 37 magnificent paintings. This forms the basis of one of many detailed studies in the volume. Other subjects covered range from painting under Akbar, to the influence of European painting, provincial Mughal painters and painting under British rule.
