Manuscript description
Almost clean margins contain: very few commentary and correction notes, and (sometimes) the names of the ruler discussed in the text. Completion of sentences in the margins. Consistent use of catchwords. Colophon of Muḥammad b. Aḥmad b. Muḥammad (al-Ṭantbāy?) al-Shāfiʿī in 871 AH (و كان الفراغ من نسخه في السادس و العشرين من شهور ربيع الآخر سنة احدى و ستين و ثمانمائة) (f.260, f.261a). The main text ends on f.160b while contains a list of the rulers of Egypt mentioned in this volume of the book (f.261a). An ownership stamp (most probably of Sultan Ahmet) (f.1b). TKSM stamp on f.1a. There is an old call number of the manuscript on f.1a “Tārīkh 185”. Ownership statement of Aḥmad b. Fatḥ al-Dīn (al-Rāyid?) (f.1a). Binding: Crimson leather decorated by stamped turanj (and decorated by vegetal shapes), and decorated envelope flap tucked under the upper cover. There are two stubs in the inside of the covers which are brown leather decorated by vegetal shapes. The inside of the covers contain glued papers decorated in blue, white, and pink.
Naskh script. Black ink. (different degrees of) Red rubrication and overlining, and red inverted commas around poetry hemistichs. Writing Surface 235x150mm. The mistara is clear throughout the manuscript. Papers are slightly trimmed. F.1a has an illuminated rectangular panel executed in gold, red, (degrees of) brown, and blue which has an upper rectangular that contains the catch-title of the book, a central rosette which has the rest of the title and the author’s name written in not decorated black ink (unlike the upper cartouche). Oriental Papers. The Kurras number is written on the top left side of the recto side (quinion gathering).
