These two pages are from a manuscript that evidently was written and illustrated for the library (at Herat) of the Timurid king Shah Rukh, the son of Timur (Tamerlane). The Majma' al-Tawarikh traced the history of the world, beginning with the prophets of the Old Testament until the reign of Shah Rukh.
