Manuscript is a large portion of a work on the manufacture of petroleum, oils, and gums. On the title page, a piece of paper has been glued over the top three-quarters of the page so that only the rubricated title and 3 lines of writing at the bottom are visible. There follow two pages of tables on different kinds of petroleums, oils, and gums. On the next leaf begins the text proper, which starts with chapter six (al-bāb al-sādis) on the manufacture of gums.
