Project Notes
Manuscript with 26 folios and 19 illustrations according to the print-out.

Need to clarify which is any of the other loose sheets of the similar date belong to this ms. as well as those more obviously part of it (1990: 247-251).

Need provenance, folio numbers, the language nasta'liq and thuluth?

check sample page - where does it come from (what is on back) or is it a text page: it is on the reverse of K...

-Rubrics are written in Thulth, but the text is in very poor quality Nasta'liq. SM
