Very few correction notes. Many pages are written on different papers in the middle of the manuscript but probably they are written by the original copyist. An index of the subjects of the manuscript precedes the text. The author's name is written wrongly (by the hand of the copyist of the first 3 pages) in the title page as: Abū al-Maḥāsin Ḥassān b. ʿArabshāh. The copyist probably thought that the character of the narrator in the book, Ḥassān, is the author. There is a long prayer at p.1.
