Physical Details:
Collation:

6 V (60), V+1 (71), V (81), VI (93), V (103), IV+1 (112) ; chiefly quinions ; 'quire numbering' in the form of whole words roughly every ten leaves toward the middle of each quire (often the leaf following the middle bifolium, see p.35, p.57, p.77, p.97, etc.) ; catchwords present ; pagination in pencil, Western numerals, supplied during digitization (includes inserts).

Layout:

Written mainly in 21 lines per page ; written area of a few texts divded to four and two columns to set off poetry ; frame-ruled.

Script:

Naskh influenced by nastaʻlīq ; all works mainly in one fine Eastern Anatolian hand, virtually serifless with effect of tilt to the right, mainly closed counters, some elongation of descenders and horizontal strokes, slight effect of words descending to baseling, freely ligatured, point of final nūn often assimilated with bowl, final yāʼ often mardūdah, etc.

Decoration:

Titles, section headings, keywords, and abbreviation symbols rubricated ; overlining in red.

Support:

European laid paper with 11 laid lines per cm. (vertical) and major chain lines spaced roughly 23-24 mm. apart (horizontal) but spaced roughly 6-8 mm. from apparently minor chain lines (giving the effect of chain lines grouped in pairs) ; watermark with crown above fleur de lis, studded pendant and initials 'GB' 'MF' below ; well-sized and burnished ; some inclusions ; thin but sturdy ; moisture damage obscures text in upper inner corners of written area.

Binding:

Pasteboards covered in combed marbled paper (in red, blue, and yellow ; see interior of flap) with dark brown leather over spine, foreedge flap, and edges/turn-ins ; entire cover now fitted with custom textile wrapper in light green-blue linen, stiched across board linings in heavy cream and blue thread (yarn) ; Type II binding (with flap) ; board linings in laid paper ; sewn in cream thread, two stations ; worked endbands in green and red, fair condition ; overall in fair condition with abrasion, staining, tearing, etc.

Accompanying Materials:

Slips carrying glosses tipped in (paginated pp.49-50, pp.55-56).

Former Shelfmarks:

British Museum, London "No. 74. Collection of tracts."

Origin:

All works appear to be in the hand of a single copyist, named in the colophons which appear following a few of the works (see p.24, p.119, p.144, and p.177) as Muḥammad al-Qāriṣī [al-Qarṣī?] ibn Uways ibn Muḥammad ibn Ramaḍān (Mehmet Üveys Karsî). As appears in colophon on p.24, transcription of al-Tibrīzī al-Ḥanafī's Sharḥ al-Risālah al-ʻAḍudīyah fī al-ādāb [al-Risālah al-Ḥanafīyah] finished Rabīʻ II 1155 [June-July 1742]. As appears in colophon on p.119, transcription of Risālat Ḥallāl al-mushkilāt finished 1 Rabīʻ I 1155 [May 1742].
