Illustrated commentary on the Epitome (or Quintessence) of Astronomy, written in the 12th century by Maḥmūd ibn Muḥammad al-Jighmīnī. Numerous marginal annotations by the copyist include a comment that he attributes to the author (f. 59). A dedication to Ulugh Beg opens the text after the preface. A seal impression of Persian origin appears at the beginning and end of the manuscript (f. 1r, 65r).
