shikaste

http://sovet.geraldika.ru/images/lj/Fathaligrant.jpg

This official document (firman) written in shikasteh, the primary chancery script of the Qajars, declares that Fath 'Ali Shah (r. 1798-1834 CE) honours Sir Hartford Jones, the British envoy to Iran in 1809-11 CE, with an order which is depicted at the right. Does anybody possess information about this script? Any manuels or somethibg of the kind?
Thanks in advance.

I am looking forward to your help.
I hope I'm not the only one that looked at the title of this post and thought something had broken, LOL.
In fact, the script gives an impression of broken Arabic letters.
