Layout:

Written in 21 lines per page ; frame-ruled.

Script:

Naskh-nastaʻlīq ; virtually serifless ; mainly closed counters ; slight effect of words descending to baseline ; final words/letters of line often superscript ; exaggerated thickness of horizontal strokes.

Decoration:

Keywords and abbreviations rubricated ; overlining in red ; crude rectangular 'headpiece' in red ink above opening on p.4 ; written area surrounded by red rule-border.

Support:

European laid paper with 9 laid lines per cm. (vertical) and chain lines spaced 26 mm. apart (horizontal) ; paschal lamb watermark in four-loped circle [compare Piccard inv. J 340/no. 86802 / Venice, 1662). Heawood 2840 (Verona, 1678) Piccard inv. J 340/no. 86801 (Innsbruck, 1625)] ; fairly sturdy and well-burnished ; some staining.

Former Shelfmarks:

British Museum, London "No. 153. Tracts on dialectics."

Origin:

As appears in colophon on p.113-114, copied by Maḥmūd ibn Ḥājjī Muḥammad (Mahmut bin Hacı Mehmet) in the medrese of the Nişancı Mehmet Paşa complex in Istanbul. Transcription of the first work finished in Dhū al-Qaʻdah 1083 [February-March 1673]. As appears on p.127, transcription of second work finished 1083 [February-March 1673]. Colophon on p.196 is quite difficult to make out, but seems to indicate that transcription of final work was completed in 1084 [1673 or 1674]. Paper certainly suggests 17th century.
