Editorial notes
Mohd. Yosof’s text follows PMN 209, drawing on other versions only "as comparisons and for completeness".
According to Mohd. Yusof’s editorial notes, the opening section of the text, the Mukadimah, is found only in PNM 209.  Unfortunately several pages are missing from that manuscript, implying that the text is incomplete in this section.
