Vraja Mohana Maḥsūrī, Mir’āt al-qiyāfa

[Preliminary Entry] A treatise on the sāmudrika attributed to Vraja Mohana Maḥsūrī, probably the same Vraja Mohana who authored the Maḫzan al-‘ulūm. As in the section on sāmudrika in the Tuḥfat al-hind (q.v.), the Mir’āt al-qiyāfa is divided in two chapters, on men and women.
