Manuscript description
Naskh script. Black ink. Non-consistent use of red rubrication and overlining, and red inverted commas around poetry hemistichs. Writing Surface is notfixed (sometime the copyist writes the text vertically and horizontally). Oriental paper (some are darker and thicker). There are also some folios from other works attached to the codex which are written on newer papers (whiter with clear chain lines). Very extensive use of the margins which contain: several commentary and correction notes. Completion of sentences in the margin, and highlighting the names of persons and the topics discussed in the text. Consistent use of catchwords. The biography of the last sultan is incomplete. Several passages are left blank. There is a note on f.1b which says that this work is part of a majmūʿ contains poetry, stories, akhbār, and historiographical works. Some of the folios are indeed from other works like (f.86-f.95) but they are no longer organized. The first folio (f.1a) and flyleaf have several poetry verses which might be quoted from the old majmūʿ. No colophon, but there is an ownership statement on f.1a which says that this book is owned by its copyist “muḥammad ʿUmar al-Abūdarī”. The title of the book is written by a different hand on the margins of f.1b. An ownership stamp of the library of Sultan Ahmet III (f.1a). TKSM stamp on f.1a.
There is an old call number of the manuscript on f.1a “Tārīkh 188”. The folios f.308a and f.308b have a text which the copyist claim that it is a letter sent by the Muslims of al-Andalus to the Sultan al-Malik al-Ẓahir Qanṣūh, complaining about the injustices of the King of Qashtālah, and his torture of the muslims . F.307b has a beautiful visualization of poetry which drawn in a shape of a flower where letter Ḥ is in the center (as each verse starts with it), and the rest of the verses are written on circular shape on the petals Binding: brown leather decorated with small tools, and decorated envelope flap tucked under the upper cover. The inside of the covers are brown leather and glued to the first and last folios of the codex.
