In the catalogue of the Topkapı Palace Museum Library this manuscript is attributed to an author called Sinan Çavuş. However, Hüseyin G.Yurdaydın argues that the manuscript preserved in Istanbul was written by MatrakçıNasuh. The text is illustrated with four maps and 32 miniatures and describes the Ottoman conquest of Siklós, Esztergom andSzékesfehérvár during the Hungarian campaigns of Süleyman I. in 1542/1543. The last part of the manuscript provides some information about the journey of Süleymans interpreter Yunus to the French king Francis I. and Hayruddin Barbarossa. The manuscript includes miniature plans of Mediterranean ports attacked by the Ottomans in 1542/1543 (Toulon, Marseille, Nice, Genua).
