Women's Worlds in Qajar Iran

Shirin Dukht Sultani Nuri

This collection consists of two sets of correspondence: the first between Zarrin Taj and her husband; the second between I‘timad al-Atibba’ and his son Mu‘tamad al-Sultan primarily concerning household expenses and business affairs but also about family issues (including news of marriages, births, deaths, divorce, travels, etc.), most exchanged between Tehran and Tabriz from 1897-1903. In addition, the collection includes a sales settlement and a marriage contract. The former is for a house in Kamraniyah sold to Haj Mirza Murtiza Quli Sultan al-Atibba’ Nuri (I‘timad al-Atibba’) in 1898.
