Leather bound codex with intricate tooling on upper and lower covers; some residue of gold paint in design. Doublures feature elaborate leather filigree on red leather with gold and paint which overlays a blue painted background. Both covers are detached.
Initial page has medallion design with gold, including gold and red floral patterns on blue paint. The title of the work is no longer apparent in the center medallion. First page of the text has ʻunwān in similar colors and design. Title of work is also missing from this location. Volume has edge title, but spelled "kimiyā-yi saʻādat" instead of "kīmiyā-yi saʻādat".
Text written in clear black naskh script with rubrication. Text bordered in blue and gold lines throughout.
