The MS is now in the keeping of the British Library on restricted access [Loan 2]; the folios with miniatures are detached with the bi-folio in which they are found, stored separately in carton mounts in the Prints and Drawings department.
There is no colophon. The manuscript was inspected and dated by Robinson (when still bound and in the keeping of the RAS) according to the name of Muhammad Juki, son of Shahrukh, mentioned twice in the decoration of two miniatures (ff. 278r and 296r). The miniatures have new margins, changed during restoration, evidently in India in the 18th century.
It has the Baysunghur preface (rather rubbed) and two major lacunae: 1600 couplets (16 folios) between ff. 7 and 8 (from the start of the poem down to the revenge of Manuchihr on his uncles Tur and Salm), and 1000 couplets (10 folios) between ff. 41 and 42 (from Zal's sending Rustam to find Kay Qubad to Rustam's fifth labour).
The manuscript contains 32 miniatures, two of which can attributed to the Mughal school, added later. The pictures can be divided between four painters. For the details, see B.W. Robinson, Persian paintings in the collection of the Royal Asiatic Society (London, 1998), pp. 1-8; Barbara Brend, Muhammad Juki's Shahnama of Firduasi (London, 2010), passim.
