[Preliminary Entry] A Persian adaptation of the Kokaśāstra (or Ratirahasya) by Pandit Kokkoka. The translation is commonly attributed to the Sufi Żiyā’ al-Dīn Naḫšabī (d. around 751/1350-51) who was also the author of a famous Persian translation of the Śūkasaptatī (Ṭūṭī nāma). Many copies and illustrated copies of this work made during the Mughal and post-Mughal epochs are preserved.
