Illustrated herbal with detailed descriptions in multiple languages (but all written in the Persian nastaʻlīq script) of the physical appearance and the medicinal effect of many plants, as well as some trees, minerals, and substances derived from animals. The manuscript is not complete: it comprises text and illustrations from parts of Chapter 1, substantial parts of Chapters 2-4, and parts of Chapter 5. Many leaves have extensive repairs at the edges or corners. The manuscript seems never to have been bound.
