Inscription: The cards give the name in the inscription/colophon scrawled in red ink along the lower left of fol. 118r as Muhammd Takr -- it looks rather to be Muhammad Taqi. The notation on the flyleaf that states that the pictures are of 'Abd al-Rahman al-Sufi mean that they are based on his images and would seem to indicate along tradition of following his original images so that the actual manuscript that this artist based his images on could have been made at any time between al-Sufi and the date of this mss.
