Scope and content
Persian manuscript written in black and with illustrations in red ink. It is the work of a scholar. It possibly dates from the 14th century. It contains astrological and cosmological charts and diagrams of stars, moon, suns, and the seasons, giving the auspicious times for prayer. It gives the auspicious times for prayer and also mentions the name of an Emperor Jalaludin Mallik. The manuscript is incomplete: beginning and end pages are missing, as well as portions of pages are excised.
On the front fly leaf, there is writing in a different and unsophisticated hand, unrelated to the main manuscript. It relates some family history and is written in Persian with two words in Arabic. There is a number, 782, at the top of this page. If it is a year, it also dates back to the 14th cebtury.
