Public Notes
Two very faded frontispieces open the volume (f. 1r, 2r with the intervening page, 1v, blank), the text of which starts with the prose preface in the Baysunghur version, on a magnificent illuminated double-title page (ff. 3v-4r). The preface ends on f. 16r and is followed by the start of the poem, under a delicate 'unvan with blue finials, on f. 16v.
Project Notes
