A Hindu tale, retold in prose and verse. Chiefly in Persian, with intermittent prose and verse in Arabic; colophon is in Arabic. Copied on A.H. 2 Ramazan 146 [A.D. 1637] by Yar Muhammad Shaykh Fayz Allah al-Hashimi al-Madani. A note on leaf 1 recto is dated A.H. 1119 [A.D. 1707 or 1708], hence the missing figure in the date of the colophon would seem to be a zero. Good naskhi, in red and black. Unwan in gold and colors on leaf 1 verso; with five colored miniatures. Islamic binding, in brown. Paginated 1-341 (291-299 omitted; first and last page not numbered).
