Public Notes
Volume II only, defective at beginning and end. Sample page (fol. 1r) is the incipit, at Mohl, 17: 76 - Darab asks Garzar concerning his birth and parenthood. The text ends on fol. 207v, breaking off at Mohl

Christie's sale catalogue, 26 October 2017, p. 92. The pages are heavily worn and stained, but retain original character.

Project Notes
All information to b checked. Initial inspection and some photos on 9 October, thanks to Behnaz.

Check final page (207r - looks as though there's text on verso too). Correct.
