It is the second volume cataloguing the Islamic material of the Royal Library, Copenhagen, and describes 94 manuscripts and 3 lithographed prints acquired early last century. Most of these items date from the 19th century, with the oldest dated to 910 AH (1504 CE). The vast majority of the texts deal with Twelver Shi'i (Imami) law and legal theory.
