Abstract: 

Taj AI-ghesasis the most detailed and the most ancient book of stories about prophets written in Persian. The writer of the book is Abu Nasr Ahmad Bokhari, a fifth-century scholar. The book is the teachings of his master Jeyhani, which he has rewritten in his own style. It may be divided into three books: the first book begins with the story of creation of Adam, and ends with the story of Jacob. The second book contains the story of Joseph. The third book begins with the story of Moses and ends in the tragedy of Ashoora. We don't know much about the lives of the writers of the book but there is no doubt that it was written in the year 475.
There are several manuscripts of the book in Islam Abad, London and Tashkent. There is also another manuscript in the Majlis Library. But these manuscripts are fairly recent, considerably changed by scribes. The oldest and the most reliable manuscript is the one kept in the library of the Center for Research under number 4040. The style of this manuscript closely resembles that of Tafsir-e Soor'abadi and Tarjome-ye Tafsir-e Tabari.
