Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an annotated translation of Mustafa ‘Ȃlis Ottoman text. In the Epic Deeds of Artists, the account of calligraphers who worked in graceful styles has, with [His] auspicious aid, reached a conclusion. And it has been demonstrated that it is necessary for this book, which ought to be held in high regard [and is] completed, to serve those interested in calligraphy, the great, illustrious, and exalted virtuous men to whom reverence is due, and be kept at all times in their treasuries. The skill of the pen and writing is an illuminated province in the seven climes of the sciences and knowledge and in the realm of art and finesse. The celebrated companions who were the copyists of divine revelation and illustrious friends of high rank were masters of exalted ability of that graceful land and its chosen fortunate acquaintances.
