Binding: Modern maroon fabric boards; one flyleaf. The ms. recently conservated by Intach ICI Orissa Art Conservation Centre. The pages have all been covered with a thin gauze of Japanese paper, except for those with a painting. The text is very smudged and now rather hard to read - it is not clear whether the smearing was caused by the application of the gauze, or already present.
The ms. is paginated in reverse, as though it were a European ms. (i.e. f. 1v = f. 202r). For now, the pictures are numbered in their sequence, with the actual (reverse) folio number entered as the reconstructed folio no. The final folio, with colophon (which gives no details of date of scribe), is numbered 288, suggesting some folios are missing.
The manuscript is undated, but perhaps of 18th century.
Inspected in haste by Ch.M. January 2011, leaving an incomplete record.
