Scarce first edition of this fifth and the last volume of the dictionary including a detailed "glossary of difficult words used in the text", which is an invaluable resource in the Persian language, of corpus titled "Dâstân-e turktâzân-i Hind, girdâvarde-e khâma-e" [i.e. History of Muslim and Turkish rule in India] written by Mirzâ Nasru'llâh Khân Fidâīî at the end of the 19th century.

This volume is the fifth and the last of Nasrullah Khan's five-volume work on the Muslim period in the Indian subcontinent up to the British Raj (1858-1947), conventionally said to start in 712, after the conquest of Sindh and Multan by the Umayyad caliphate. From the late 12th century onwards, Muslim empires dominated the subcontinent, most notably the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire.
