  • 31 long lines per page. Very dense copy written in small naskh using black ink, with headings in red (maqāmah headings in larger script using black ink); collation notes in violet ink and black ink in juzʼ 1 (fol. 149a, on the margin, using the same violet ink: "بلغت المقابلة بحمد اللة ومنه في صفر سنة 588"); in black ink in juzʼ 2 (violet ink on fol. 231a). Glazed paper with visible laid lines and single vertical chain lines (irregular, 180 to 250 mm., often curved); frame-ruled (12 mm.). Catchword only on fol. 87b. The pages have been trimmed so that parts of the marginalia are cut off. Some pages are repaired (loss of text and marginalia on fol. 353 a-b). Two foliations: one in black ink using Arabic numerals and one in pencil using Western numerals. Excellent condition except for a few holes. Fol. 234 and 235 are glued together ; fol. 83 is a modern addition replacing a missing leaf.
  • Each maqālah begins with a table of contents using abjad.
  • Copied from a faulty copy ("min nuskhah saqīmah") by Barakāt ibn Thābit(?) ibn Ḥamd(?) ibn Barakāt ibn Bakār(?) in Ḥarrān during the first ten days of Dhū al-Qaʻdah 586 (colophon).
