Manuscript description
Naskh script. Black ink with red rubrication and overlining, at some points bold black orthography for highlighting. Some of the poetry is marked with red triangle dots. The manuscript is in fact executed in different hands: there is a change at pages 153-192, where the hand is much less composed and where there are many marginal additions, again at 95-114, with a very composed hand, again at 253-333, where red rubrication is omitted, and then from 333-370 again another hand. Margins contain: several ḥashiyya and general commentary notes, correction notes, preparation notes for red filling in of main text, which are regularly cut off. On p. 5 there are notes in Maghrebi script, and on 335 several lines are crossed out. The two flyleafs before the title page contain a table of contents, and a similar such page has been inserted between pages 44 and 45. The title page has the title written in a descending triangle. Below the title a note gives the author’s death date, but another note comments that this is mistaken, as it is the death date not of this al-Qalqashandī, but of the one who wrote "Ṣubḥ al-aʿshā". Title page also contains several ownership notes: one of them is the amir Ismaʿīl Katkhudā ʿAzbāj Qazdughlī, a member of the powerful 18th century Katkhudā clan; a Maghrebi agent who identifies himself as ʿUmar b. Muḥammad al-Harānī (perhaps al-ʿUmrānī) al-Ḥasanī, who has also added notes on pages 95 (about Ibn Khaldūn) and 127; a note by a certain Aḥmad b. al-sharīf al-Shaddādī al-Ḥusaynī, perhaps dated to 1246; another Maghrebi hand of which only parts of the name(s) are readable (Muḥammad b. ʿAlī […] and Ibrāhīm al-Qāḍī (?)); perhaps a certain ʿAlī b. [Qāsim]; and then a mostly effaced note which can however still be discerned as being by the famous lexicographer Muḥammad Murtaḍā al-Wāsiṭī al-Zabīdī (d. 1732). The title page further contains a seal from the Dār al-Kutub.
