Editorial notes
Two variant versions of this important text are included in the MCP, this one based on Roorda’s text and edited by Lioubov Goriaeva (TS.R), and the other edited by Khalid M. Hussain (TS.K).   The Roorda text is slightly longer.
Lioubov Goriaeva presents a careful transcription of Roorda’s edition.
Roorda’s edition includes the Malay text in Jawi script with parallel Dutch translation followed by 3 pages of editor’s notes.   The text prepared by Lioubov Goriaeva is a transcription of the text with footnotes pertaining to difficult or dubious readings of the Jawi-written words.   Quotations from the QurŽan have been included in the transcription provided by transliteration.org.  Other Arabic and Persian quotations are not transcribed, however almost all of them are translated into Malay by the author (or the copyist).
The notes linked to this transcription treat Arabic and Persian words which are not commonly used in Malay and, also, dubious readings and erroneous spellings of some Malay words.
