Manuscript description
Covering the period (567-702 AH). Naskh script. Black ink with red rubrication and overlining. Red dots at the end of some sentences and inverted commas around poetry hemistichs. Writing Surface 195x120 mm. The edges of the papers are slightly cutted. Some papers are harmed by bookworms but still legible. Almost no correction notes. Some commentary notes only in the first two folios. Sometimes, the sentences of the main text are completed in the margins. Oriental papers. No Colophon.

Saʿīd?) f.1a; two stamps of Abū Bakr (?) which has Ottoman or Persian prayer on them (f.1a).
