Lightbulb Illustrations of 17th Century Persian Soldiers

I had previously found the source document for some of the Persian soldiers that appear in George Gush's Renaissance Warfare. It is Dr. Kaempfer's Album of Persian Costumes and Animals, 1684-5, painted by Jani.
The musketeers, Gush figures e & f, are from page 09 a royal bodyguard and a musketeer. Dr. Kaempfer's Album of Persian Costumes The clothes and poses are nearly identical.
Gush figure a is from page 016 Cavalryman. Dr. Kaempfer's Album of Persian Costumes
and figure c is from page 08 a palace usher. Dr. Kaempfer's Album of Persian Costumes

I have recently found the source of George Gush's 3rd Persian musketeer, Emperor Timur’s Ambassador in the Presence of Sultan Bayezid Yıldırım (“the Thunderbolt”), 1599-1600AD, an Ottoman manuscript painting in: British Library. Ms. Or. 5736, folio 172b
It includes three Persians with muskets at bottom right.
