RAS Persian 230. (Library, Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland)
1 copy of Majma‘ al-inshāʼ by Muḥammad Amīn Banī Isrāʼīl
Incomplete, the text breaking off in the twenty-ninth section. Folio 1a. Note in Persian with the date 5 Safar 1190 (more likely than 1195), the remainder defaced and partly rewritten in another hand. This has evidently been taken as the date of copying, but there is no real reason to believe that. Flyleaves have several prayers, verses etc. on them, mostly difficult to read. Headings and punctuation in red. A collection of letters and other compositions in 30 sections (fasl)..
