Anonymously-compiled collection of texts, 10 in number, on regulations and conventions of the Timurid or Mughal Empire
According to Storey, this is not a formal work
Included at the end (f. 14r) is an older diagrammatic plan (possibly extracted from the original manuscript), showing the arrangement of the umarāʾ, khavvāṣ, and mutaṣaddiyān around the dawlat khānah-yi khāṣṣ va ʿāmm in the reign of Emperor Muḥammad Shāh. The site is not recorded, but it is not unlike the dīvān-i khāṣṣ va ʿāmm courtyards of Akbarābād (Agra) or Shāhjahānābād (Delhi) forts. Rare.
