I may be able to shed a smallest of ray of light into your darkness. My Arabic is shaky and I do not know any Pharsi or Pastu.

You have shown five photos, one at the top, five at bottom.

Most of the writing is in cursive Arabic script, written mostly by a steady hand. Both Arabic and Pharsi (Persian or Iranian) use virtually the same script. This could be Arabic not Pharsi.

I can not tell what either stamp says as they are to indistict for my poor, tired eyes. However I suspect the square one is a 'From the Library of...' which is common even in the West.

Photo 4, upper left corner, I see four digets: 1257, if I recall correctly. This may be a date in a Lunar Calendar.

Photo 5 upper left corner. There is a matrix of symbols not in Arabic script. They rather look almost as if they are Norse Runes, but hard to tell.

Sorry I can not be more assistance.

Very interesting find. Unfortunately I know nothing about Arabic book culture, so I can't help you. However you could try and post a question with links to those pictures on the Wikipedia Reference Desk. I have often found that there are people there with just the required special knowledge present to answer such questions
