Ms. 937 (completed in 1934), Isl. Ms. 981, Isl. Ms. 988, and Isl. Ms. 998.

Support: Wove paper of at least two different types.
Decoration: Opening sections entirely in blue ink ; elsewhere matn in black or blue ink and glosses rubricated (see pp.100, 102, 130-150) ; in final sections both matn and glosses in red (from pp.103-107, 109-130, 151 to close).
Script: Ruqʻah ; quick, compact hand in a thin to medium line (varies) ; serifless and freely ligatured with mainly closed counters, slight effect of words descending to baseline, pointing somewhat careless and in strokes rather than distinct dots, final yāʼ usually unpointed.
Layout: Highly variable, though with matn in central written area ranging from 11-19 lines per page and glosses arranged in margins.
Collation: Pages between sections left fully or partially blank, some serving as section 'title pages' (see pp.21, 57, 109, 153) ; pagination in pencil, Western numerals, supplied during digitization.
