- Persian and Arabic
- This is an illuminated and illustrated copy of the collected works (Kullīyāt) of Saʿdī (d. 691 AH / 1292 CE). The text, which was completed on 10 Jumādá II 926 AH / 1520 CE, is written in nastaʿlīq script in black, with incidentals in gold and blue. The codex originally opened with a double-page illuminated frontispiece (fols. 1b-2a), although fol. 1b was replaced at some point in the manuscript's history. There are thirteen paintings illustrating the text, and illuminated incipit pages introduce the beginning of each individual work. The gold-brushed brown leather binding with floral and vine decoration seems to be contemporary with, although not original to, the manuscript.
