Public Notes
This is the second volume of ms fragments that are bound together out of order. The cover of this volume is a lacquer binding with a hunting scene on the front and a book presentation at the back.

The colophon, which gives the year of completion, has been defaced, so that the name of the calligraphy (Muzahhib..) has been made illegible.
