Genealogical tables of the Prophets, followed by Eastern and Persian dynasties up to Fatḥ-ʻAlī Shah of the Qajar dynasty. The author says this work is based on an abridged Turkish translation he saw of a Persian text by Yūsuf ibn ʻAbd al-Laṭīf called Tavārīkh va siyar-i anbiyā va akhbār-i sulūk-i mulūk. Since the Persian had been lost, but the Turkish text was recognized as being a translation from Persian, it was decided to translate it back into Persian (f. 1v). The copy then seems to have been expanded to include up to the second Qajar ruler.
Incomplete copy of the Gospels, beginning in chapter 44 of Mark and ending in the second chapter of Luke, and notated with divisions for reading on specific days; followed by leaves of a question and answer book about Arabic grammar copied in a different hand. The leaves for this second work have been remargined and inset into larger frames so that the two works could be bound together.
