Note: Shelfmark: Ann Arbor, University of Michigan, Special Collections Library, Isl. Ms. 387
Origin: Lacks dated colophon ; decoration, hand, paper, etc. suggest 16th century. Ownership statement at close on p.553 referring to Cığalzade Yusuf Sinan Paşa (d.1604) as vezir would seem to indicate a rough terminus ante quem of 1583-1596, i.e. the time of his vezirship prior to being appointed grand vezir.
Former shelfmark: "359 T. De M. [i.e. Tammaro De Marinis]" inscribed in pencil on recto of front flyleaf (p.1).
