These two volumes represent an interesting compendium of treatises of different authors and subjects, all compiled in 958AH/1550-51 AD. The contents are as follows:

Volume I

1. Mehmed ibn Faramuz al-Rumi, also known as Munla Kusro (d.1480), Risala fi al-‘alab, on grammar and the Qur’an.
2. Nasir al-Din Tusi (d.1274 AD), A one-page fasl on the categories, aqsam al-hikmah, on the science of philosophy.
3. Abu 'Ali al-Husayn ibn 'Abdullah ibn al-Hasan ibn 'Ali ibn Sina, known as Avicenna (d.1037 AD), Al-ajwiba ‘an al-masail al-ashr, on the science of philosophy.
4. Shams al-Din Ahmed (d.1536) (?), Risala fi'l-wajud al-dhini, on theology and philosophy.
5. Sharh diwan Amir al-Mumin 'Ali li Hasan al-Mubidi, extracts from two Persian treatises relating to the Umayyads and to several recipes on how to remove text from paper.
6. Ibn Sina, Risala fi tafawat al-anf’al wa'l-anfa’alat, a treatise on psychology.
7. Abu Mansur Mohammed ibn Ali ibn 'Umar al-Jabban (d.1025 AD) Fi asbab huduth al-huruf, on the science of phonetics. 

Volume II

1. Four sections related on the recitation of the Qur’an.
2. Ibn Sina, Risala fi sabab ijabat ad-du’a, a treatise on the cause of efficiency of prayers.
3. Ibn Sina, Risala fi ana kol ma fi a’alam al-kawn mumkin, on the universe and metaphysics.
4. Ibn Sina, Risala fi haqa’iq ilm at-tawhid, on theology.
5. Possibly Ibn Sina, Risala fi ta’iref al-ra’i al-muhassal ll-aqdameen fi jawahir al-ajram al-samawiyya, on the planets.
6. Ibn Sina, Risala fi an al-nafs al-insanya, on happiness and psychology.
7. Ya’qub al-Kindi (d. ca. 873), Kitab fi qall’i al-a’atha’ar wa al-hibr wa gha’ireh, a treatise on the removal of stains, ink and other substances.
8. Sharh diwan Amir al-Mumin 'Ali li Hasan al-Mubidi, an unidentified treatise. 
Two leaves with poetry.

The variety of authors and subjects show a very clear editorial choice: most of the risalas are not recorded in Brockelmann or Rosenfeld & Ihsanoglu, but it is likely that their titles have been given by the editor of the volumes as these are extracts of longer treatises. Worth mentioning is the presence of a treatise by al-Kindi, one of the most famous and prolific scientists of the ninth century. This section is a rare manual on different types of stains and the best remedies to remove them (vinegar or salt or other varied mixtures). This treatise, although not recorded in Rosenfeld & Ihsanoglu, it’s mentioned and summarised in the article 'Arabic Treatises about Spot removal from the 3rd -11th /9th-17th centuries' by Lutfallah Gari, in Journal of Islamic Manuscripts VI (2015) pp.97-131. A copy of the treatise is recorded as being in the Suleymaniye Library (see Journal of the Institute of Islamic Manuscripts, vol.XXX, part I; Kuwait, 1972, p.91).
