In the study of 'Manuscripts' it is necessary to know some relevant techniques and sciences rather than the information of its particular part. It should include knowledge about letters, ink, paper, drawing, painting and other pictorial meritsto appreciate the value of a manuscript, so that, the value, antiquity and originality can be assessed. The knowledge of 'Manuscripts' should not only be known to the compiler but also to the catalogers of manuscripts and researchers. Undoubtedly, the internal evidence of a manuscript is a source of important information, but sometimes this information is also a cause of deception. Therefore, there should be information such as the origin of manuscript with respect to regional traditions, paper and volume. It is very beneficial and an important research need to combine the important information of the manuscripts, margins, manuscript corrections, painting ,decoration, quality and seal, etc. All the above discussions are not available in a single form and some of the discussions are not even mentioned in Urdu books. For this, by using the indexes of the manuscripts of different libraries and dictionaries, the details of important discussions are presented separately in this study.
