The paper is a brief presentation of the Buhaira (lit. "a small lake"), a 17th century Persian treatise, containing inter alia ample information on various demons, jinns, monsters and imaginary beings (their forms, habits, dwellings and functions), culled from Near Eastern (mostly Islamic) folk traditions and written sources. It is a typical, but less-known, sample of the Persian wondergraphical literature compiled by Mir Mahmūd Fozūnī Astar-ābādī, known as Mollā Fozūnī.
