This paper makes available images, transcriptions, and translations of two original decrees by Sulṭān-Ḥusayn Bayqarā (r. 873–911/1469–1506), the last Timurid monarch at Herat. Original Timurid chancery documents are exceedingly rare. By publishing images of the decrees’ recto and verso faces, and details of two different royal seals, the artistic and historical values of the documents are brought to the attention of scholars. The calligraphic style is taʿlīq, written in this instance with no dots. The recto and verso face royal seals are distinct and legible; the verso side seal (muhr) may not have been previously seen by scholars.
