The E28 Album is composed of five stray sheets from an unknown Persian
manuscript datable by circumstantial evidence to the 17th–18th cc. The texts contained
therein are for the most parts accounts pertaining to the activities of the Sufi fraternities
in Central Asia in the period from the 11th to the 15th c. The five miniature paintings
illustrate the stories told.
