MS No. 22, dating from the late eighteenth century, a rather tattered item which contains mostly texts of poems and litanies with musical annotations was copied by a Mevlevi dervish, probably for use by himself or his fellows in the tekke to which he belonged. MS No. 38 shows an equally worn appearance. It is a collection of short works of popular divination, which was probably copied by the owner Mu~tara Cebeci (the 'Armourer') for his own use. MS No. 81, an anthology of poems, also extremely well thumbed out, was made by a certain Ya~ya, an obscure seventeenth century poet, probably of Istanbul, who used the pen-names of Va'di and ijali and he might well have read poems from it to his friends.
