RAS Persian 210 (6). (Library, Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland)
1 copy of Risalah-i 'ilm-i musiqi. So in colophon by Anon.
Occupies ff90-107 of the manuscript. For further details see Codrington/Reade No 210 (1). In the colophon it is stated that the original name of the work was Parjatak (diacriticals uncertain), and in the the title given on the page preceding the text the same word occurs in an obscure phrase interpreted by Staunton to mean the book (meaning the whole manuscript) was translated. However, the first chapter of this last text deals with Persian music and the work is clearly not translated from Sanskrit or Arabic. A treatise on Persian and Indian music, in an introduction and four chapters. Contains a number of diagrams of stringed instruments in red.
