Sejarah Melayu

In Malay in Jawi script. Sejarah Melayu or Sulālat al-salāṭin, also called here Hikayat Melayu. A copy of the ‘long’ version, ending with the defeat of Johor by Jambi. Copied in Singapore on 16 Rejab (no year given), by Husain bin Ismail of Tanah Merah from a MS owned by a person of Melaka. Annotated on f.1r: ‘Sa Jarha Malayu, or Code of Malay Law, copied from a Manuscript lent me by Count von Ranzow who had it from His Highness Abdoolrachman Shah, Sultan of Linga. F.J.D.’. Lodewijk Carel, Graaf von Ranzow, was Resident in Riouw 1822-1826; Sultan Abdul Rahman Syah reigned in Lingga from 1812-1832; Husain bin Ismail was one of the most prolific Malay scribes (cf. Tol 2000); the identity of F.J.D. is unknown.At the end of the first quire, on f.10v, are stuck two printed paper labels: ‘Malay. Sa Jarha Malaya, copied from a MS. lent me by Count Von Ranzow, who had it from his Highness Abdoolrachman Shah, Sultan of Linga – F.J.D. – 27 fasciculj’, and a library label: ‘Collegio / Sancti Davidis, / apud llanbedr in comitatu ceretico, / d.d.d. / Thomas Phillips, / de Brunswick Square apud Londinenses, armiger. / 1842’, with ‘MS 33’ in pencil and ‘31092’ written in ballpoint pen. From the old staining, this page evidently functioned as the original cover of the MS at St. David’s.Colophon: ‘Tamatlah kisah Hikayat Melayu ini kepada tujuh likur enam belas hari bulan Rejab dalam negeri Singapura yaum al-Sabtu jam pukul sebelas maka ada pun surat ini di salin daripada surat yang ada kepada orang Melaka yang menyuratnya Enci’ Husain bi[n] [I]smail yang ada terhenti di Tanah Merah itulah adanya.’
