This very short notice on the Persian diplomat and historian of the Caspian region Zahir al-Din b. Nasir al-Din Mar‘ashi (ca. 1412-after 1489) stresses his contribution to the historiography of the southern shore of the Caspian Sea, through his Ta’rikh-i Tabaristan u Ruyan u Mazandaran, extending from the origins up to 1476, and his Ta’rikh-i Gilan u Daylamistan carried up to 1489, both valuable for the intricate history of the petty principalities of the Caspian region.
