Manuscript description
GAL II 29 [UAM. 732]
Naskh script. Black ink (Titles and keywords are rubricated in red and sometimes in green). Dots and inverted commas around poetry hemistichs, and red dots to denote saj. Quite Unusually decorated manuscript. But it seems that the project of fully decorating it was suddenly interrupted. Thus, the first couple of folios were well-deocrated (in gold, green, and blue), then some folios were (half-)decorated by clearly cheaper colors, while the rest of the manuscript is not decorated or framed at all. Some folios are tinted in rose, and decorated by flower drawings. The manuscript was executed on at least three different types of papers. F.1a has an ornate headpiece executed in gold and blues at the top of an empty gold frame. There are various decorative elements around the frame, which was executed in gold and green at the start of the manuscript, but then in blue, green, yellow, and crimson ink for the following folios. Writing Surface 153x87 mm (some pages are framed by two gold lines till f.10, then till f.27 the frame is colored in green or blue. afterwords there are no frame). European papers (with no observable watermark). Not extensive use of the margins: few comments and correction notes. The letters are vocalized. The copyist kept the visualizations of the chess board and the Uyghur alphabet which are omitted in some of the copies of the work. The margin of f.46 has a note about the fate of an "unjust Ottoman ruler (ظالم من ظلمة بني عثمان) during the "Jalālian strife" (الفتنة الجلالية) (followed by Persian/Ottoman writing). Unclear colophon of (Jalāl al-Dīn?) dated 1012 AH. No ownership statements. Unclear stamp f.1a. Reading note of Jamāl al-Dīn al-Mālikī al-Madanī in 1019 AH (f.1a). There is a note says "Collated 27.6.68" at the end of the book. Catch-title is written on the edges of the manuscript. Binding: (case-binding) brown cardboard with a flap tucked under the upper cover decorated with carved mandorla.
