The Mughals loved books and as such every worthy person, supported a splendid library.

Even Royal manuscripts were distributed in course of time or sold to other worthy patrons. The inscriptions on such manuscripts as well as the seals, tell us stories, we will never hear anywhere else. The manuscripts have preserved autographs pf great personalities and their reactions as well as costs of the manuscripts itself. It is a history on itself.
