A fragment of the Autobiography of 'Abd al-Rahman Khan ibn Afzal Khan, Amir of Afghanistan, 1880-1901. This work of which a complete copy was formerly in the possession Sultan Muhammad Khan was planned in 10 abwabs (titles in exordium) of which the first, partly here presented, contains the autobiography, while the remainder consisted of moralising reflections and advice on the art of ruling. The present fragment covers the first 62 pages of vol.1 of Mir Munshi Sultan's Mahomed Khan's published translation The life of Abdur Rahman, Amir of Afghanistan (1900, two volumes). ( en )
