Manuscript description
An autograph of al-Maqrīzī. 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. 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. 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”.
