Manuscript description
An autograph of al-Maqrīzī. Covers the period (567-703 AH). Naskh script. The handwriting alternates from being clear and legible sometimes, to being unclear and mostly for personal use at others. However, I am not sure if it is written by two scripts or just by al-Maqrīzī. Black ink (with not very extensive use ofred rubrication and overlining). Red dots and inverted commas around poetry hemistichs. Writing Surface 215x135 mm. Very extensive use of the Margins at the beginning of the work (but mostly clean for the rest) which contain: few correction notes and Several commentary notes. Many corrections happened inside the text. Sometimes, the sentences in the main text are completed in the margins. Oriental papers. Colophon says: "تم الجزء الأول من كتاب السلوك لدول الملوك على يد جامعه أحمد بن علي المقريزي (...) الفراغ من كتابته في يوم الجمعة (...) شهر المحرم سنة ثلاثة (...) و ثمانمائة". Ownership statements of Muḥammad b. Muḥammad b. Muḥammad b. al-Sābiq al-Ḥanafī in (Friday the 6th of Shawwāl 864 AH) (f.1a); al-Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Ḥamīd (b. al-Nadā?) in 993AH (f.1a); Ḥusayn (who is known as) (Akhī Zādeh?) (f.1a); Najātī Zādeh (f.1a); stamp of Muṣṭafā Darwīsh (f.1a); Muḥammad b. Fahd? (f.1a); effaced stamp (f.1a). There is a long reading note Of a certain Cristian Orthodox scribe Ibrāhīm al-Kātib who says that he has read this book in the house of a wealthy (Archon) Orthodox deacon named “Ghobriyāl”. (f.252b). There is a note says "Collated 1.8.69" on an added paper at the end of the book. Binding: (case-binding) brown leather with a flap tucked under the upper cover, and full-cover decoration (frame, two pendants, and lobed center-piece).
