Title: On the Origin of Two Manuscripts of Hikayat Raja Pasai
Authors: Goriaeva, Liubov, Dr.

Publisher: Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia
Abstract: Manuscript A of the oldest Malay chronicle Hikayat Raja Pasai dated 1814 or 1815) had been studied and edited in Malay, French and English many times since 1830 when it became part of the Royal Asiatic Society manuscript collection, while the second manuscript - B – dated 1797, of the British Library collection, became accessible to Malay students very recently - a century and a half later. Both manuscripts could be compared only when their facsimiles became available in book editions (MS A) or online (MS B). Such a research initiated by E.U.Kratz (1989) comprised a comparative analysis of their textological characteristics: features of spelling and handwriting, lexical discrepancies, lacunas etc. In the present paper the main accent is made on reconsidering the colophons of the two codexes, as well as the manuscripts’ history: its origin, names of the owner and/or the copyist, its target audience etc.
