Manuscript description
There is another volume of the work under the same class mark. Naskh script. Black ink with red rubrications. Basmallah on 1b in blue ink. Writing surface 202x121mm. Extensive use of under- and overlining throughout, as well as red dots, but function of the latter is somewhat unclear (not to denote rhymed prose). Title page is a very finely decorated one in gold (two shades) and blue: title in top cartouche, author name in central rosette, floral motifs in corners and a medallion attached to the main rectangular frame in the top left corner, text written in cloud bands. Clearly a clean copy (mubayyaḍa), but title page likely added later. A note on the title page claims that the text is in the author's hand (bi-khaṭṭ al-muṣannif), but the title page itself refers to the author as deceased. Another note on the title page connects the work to a caliphal benefactor but the caliph is named as al-Mahdī b. al-Manṣūr Ḥusayn b. al-Mutawakkil, who we can not identify. Three furhter ownership notes on title page have been effaced and one is crossed out. Two khedival stamps. The middle part of manuscript has suffered some water damage, and as a result folio's 100 to 142 have been replaced by European paper (filigrain but no discernable water mark) copied in a different hand, albeit clearly following the layout of the remainder of the manuscript. Many corrections and additions throughout the text, on 149b the entry for Khāṣṣ Turk has been marked but not filled in. That same folio also shows that the layout starts a new verso page for the start of a new letter in the alphabetical entry arrangement, as 149a records the last entries for the letter ḥ and 149b the first for letter kh.
