Middle Eastern Demons

I've lost track of any details related to these images, including where I found them. From what I remember these are 12 - 13th century and of Turkish and Egyptian origin.

I think the first four are from 'Kitâb al-Mawalid' - by Abû Ma'shar (14th/15th cent. copy of 9th cent. mss) (info. I collected here)
I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the images above are from BNF - some of them look familiar but that style is of course fairly widespread so the memory, she is not very trustable.

Thanks for the extra info Paul.
