Fath 'Ali Hijab was a well-known scribe of the first half of the 19th century. Amongst his recorded work is a copy of Tarikh-e Mu'jam commissioned by the Qajar king Muhammad Shah (Mehdi Bayani, Ahval va Asar-e Khosh-Nevisan, Vol. II, Tehran 1346 sh., pp. 565-7). Mirza 'Abdullah Khah, for whom the copy was produced was the Deputy Chamberlain at the court of Nasir al-Din Shah.
The note at the beginning of the manuscript written by Mahdi ibn Mustafa al-Husayni al-Tafrashi (titled Badayi'-Negar) says that these 94 folios are unrivalled in the beauty of the hand. Another note by the same al-Tafrashi is in a copy of the Divan of Hafiz in the Gulistan Library. It is similarly dated AH 1323 and adds his pen-name 'Lahuti' (Mehdi Bayani, op cit., pp. 926-7).
