According to the colophon, is was copied by the illustrious Safavid calligrapher Shāh Maḥmūd Nīshāpūrī (d. 972 AH / 1564-5 CE) (fol. 306a). The codex opens with a double-page illustrated frontispiece (fols. 1b-2a), which is followed by a double-page illuminated incipit (fols. 2b-3a). There are ten additional paintings that appear to date later than the text itself. These paintings are in the style of Isfahan in the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. The textblock, which has been trimmed, is bound in lacquer boards decorated with hunting scenes and landscape motifs. The binding was also executed in Iran and is attributable to the late tenth century AH / sixteenth CE or eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. There are several erased seals and one ownership statement on fol. 1a, and a seal impression naming Muḥammad Amīn is found on fol. 3a.
