- Number of folios
Brown leather and a piece of silk is glued to it, and an envelope flap. The inside of the cover is grey paper, which is the first flyleaf as well.
Starts with Darb al-Shamsi and Darb Kurkāmah Ends with Qanṭarat al-Mūskī. Written on already used folios which have old titles written vertically and horizontally, and the text of the book is written around them. Starts with the title “al-Juzʾ al-Awwal min al-Mawāʿiẓ”. Extensive use of the margins contain: Several and consistent commentary notes which relate to the commenter’s own time, and announcements of the topics discussed in the main text. Sometimes, the sentences in the main text are completed in the margins. Several European watermarked papers are attached at the beginning of the codex (probably the plan was to complete the work on them). Writing is inconsistent as the book was clearly meant for personal use. Several of the old titles (on the used folios) are dedications/ex libris inscriptions (written over several folios which clearly means that they were written on the full folios then they were bent/gathered differently ) (e.g “al-ʿĀlī al-Mawlawī al-Sulṭānī al-Malakī al-Ẓāhirī al-Mufīdī al-Farīdī al-Muḥaqqiqī al-Aṣīlī al-ʿArīqī”). And the names Ibn al-Zuhrī and al-Khazrajī, appear in later parts. Several pieces of papers are attached between the folios. The added folios contain the title of the book and the volume number (i.e. V.1).
