Notes
  • Ms. codex.
  • Title from title page (fol. 1a).
  • The title from title page is written in a later hand. The same title appears at the beginning of the text (fol. 1b) with no mention of the author.
  • Physical description: 23 long lines per page; on some pages the text is written horizontally on a narrower portion of the page and continues vertically (see ff. 38b, 39a-b). Written in a small script in black ink with use of red ; ff. 100b and 101a are by a later hand. The names of the persons mentioned in the text are written in the margin by several hands in black, red and green ink; some of these names are also numbered in the margin using Arabic numerals. Paper with vertical laid lines visible; chain lines (apparently grouped by three) are visible on some leaves; frame-ruled (6 mm.). Catchwords on the verso of each leaf. Collation notes (collation statement fol. 105b). Modern foliation in pencil using Western numerals.
  • At the end of the text another hand added a list of names and dates numbered in the margin and a portion of text (ff. 100b-101a). Ff. 101b-103a are blank, but on fol. 103b, there is a "Fāʻidah" written by the same hand as the main text.
  • Incipit: الحمد لله الذي ميز هذه الامة ... الى يوم البحث والعشروبعد فهذا تعليق سميته عرف الزهرات في تفسير الكلمات الطيبات وهو ما اخرج النساي واللفظ له
  • Explicit: لايوافق الشرع الشريف وهو كثير الادب محب لذوي الكمال
