Autograph of Ibn Hajar. It could have been used as well for his work Rafʿ al-Iṣr ʿan Quḍāt Miṣr. But also there is definitely part from al-Durar al-Kamina as the names are there with white spaces left to be filled. Writing directions and number of lines in each folio are inconsistent. We could not find the work in the Catalog of el Escorial. Many papers are added in the middle including definitely more modern ones. The margins are extensively used by Ibn Hajar (and perhaps others as well). Folios are not numbered but there is a note on f.1a says that it has 253 (folios). Anyhow, The title on f.1a says
مجموع بخط حافظ العصر شيخ الاسلام أحمد بن حجر العسقلاني و هو مشتمل على اصول ابن الحاجب.
