This manuscript is a handsome volume, with a note on fol. 1r saying it was received from the "Bibliotheque de sa Majeste Muzaffar al-Din Shah of Persia"
The codex begins (fol. 1v) with the start of the reign of Luhrasp, under a illuminated unvan, which has been cut out from after fol. 221, to provide a more attractive start to the manuscript, which was clearly defective. The text proper begins (on fol. 2r) in the story of Zahhak, at a verse not in Mohl: "chu Iblis paivasta did anjoman"...
The margins are ruled n blue, space, two thin black, thick yellow gold, pale green, thin crimson. The columns are tw x 2 thin black lines, with gold. The rubrics vary, in boxes ruled with two thin black lines, on an empty ground (e.g. fol. 7r), or n naskh within a red-ruled box 9fol. 10r), or surrounded by a cloud decoration (fols. 14r, 20 r).,
The manuscript has been foliated on different occasions in both Arabic and European numerals (every 10 folios), the former initially and not always visible, but allowing some idea of what has been removed and is now missing, The variation between the two numbers is not consistent. From the start, it is five foliso different (on f. 15r there is written 20 in Persian).
The manuscript is not comlete and maybe disordered. The following missing pages were noted:
Between f. 19v and 20r, one page missing
