With the discovery, introduction, and the publishing of the pictorial edition of 801 AH, belonging to Nour Library of Othmani Istanbul, which is currently the oldest known version of Hafez Divan, it is necessary to have a critical look at the records of this version compared to the existing ones. As a result of the discovery of this version, new issues in the field of the narratives of the copies have emerged. For example, if earlier, in some cases, editors rejected the recording of a copy due to its lateness, now the later recordings, thanks to the 801 AH version, are replaced the former recording. Formerly, the copy of Aya Sofia dated 813 AH and the copy of Khalkhali dated 827 AH were particularly regarded as the top versions among the valid editions of Hafez due to their oldness, significance and archology and the main disagreements of scholars working on Hafez’s divan about the superior recording were based on the narratives of these two versions. As far as we know, 801 AH version has not been edited critically. This paper could be among the first steps in the examination of some of the narratives of this version. The main sources of this study, beside the 801 AH version is the Degarsaniha notebook- extracted from fifty hand-written manuscripts belonging to the 9th century and the valid editions of Hafez Divan.
