In all, six manuscripts in the Toulouse library are described here. Five of these are Arabic manuscripts (mss 898, 899, 900, 1024 and 1635) and one is of a certain interest to the subject (ms 1438, Perbòsc’s notes). Of the five Arabic manuscripts three are copies of (parts of) the Qurʾān (mss 900, 1024 and 1635), and these sometimes also contain prayers or other religious texts. The surprise in the Toulouse library is actually ms 899, with its three well-told Maghribī stories, two of which can be placed in an ʿArabī context whereas one is more of ʿAǧamī, early Persian origin. Due to an inadequate description in the catalogue of 1904, manuscript 899 has remained virtually unknown. The scripts of the Toulousan manuscripts points to three different regions of origin, the Mashriq (ms 898), the Maghrib (mss 899, 900, 1635) and the Bilād al-Sūdān (ms 1024). None of the manuscripts seems older than the 19th century. All are written on paper.
