                                  Asqalani (the Fath al-Bari), although a note on the first leaf of our
                                  manuscript does mention Ibn Hajar as author of this commentary.--
                                  A remarkably clean copy, virtually free from annotations, and with
                                  only occasional dampstains, on thick yellowish paper.-- Red ink
                                  used for sub-headings and for indication of new traditions.-- Judging
                                  from the script, the ms. may have been

                                  copied in Egypt, in the 15th/16th century.-- Old oriental calf, blind-
                                  tooled decoration in the middle of both covers, rubbed and stained;
                                  flap missing.

                Description      114 leaves; 7, 13 and 9 lines per page.-- 12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches

                Notes            Dated 19 Rabi‘ al-Awwal, 943 (Sept. 5, 1536).-- Three different
                                 hands.-- The beginning of the book has 13 lines per page; then
                                 there is a much later paper with 9 lines per page; then the largest
                                 portion of the book has 7 lines per page.-- The first section is written
                                 is a flowing Indian Naskh of about the 18th century; the newest
                                 leaves are 18th or Early 19th century; the oldest are those of the
                                 16th century.-- Red headings on old, brownish paper.-- The script of
                                 the oldest part is a curious Naskh, almost like the Khatti Bihar.--
                                 There are many interlinear and marginal notes on every page.-- The
                                 entire ms. has been remargined (by the best bookbinder in Karachi,
                                 at the orders of this writer ) in white paper, and each leaf has been
                                 interleaved with a blank white leaf.-- The whole has been bound in
                                 half-leather gold-stamped hard-cover binding, so that it is entirely
                                 usable and quite a presentable ms.-- It is most interesting because
                                 the scribe, who gives his name as Adam b. Sikandar b. Ma‘ruf
                                 Multani, states that this copy was completed during

                                 the time when the Mughal army was conquering the fort of
                                 Champaner.-- The Cambridge History of India states that the
                                 Emperor Humayun conquered Champaner on the 9th of August,
                                 1535 (the scribe must have added his colophon later).-- This adds
                                 considerable historical value to the book and allows an exact dating
                                 of this variety of script.

                Notes            N.d.-- No copyist.-- Written in black ―Khatti Bihar‖ script – a type of
                                 Indian semi Kufic-semi-Naskh script which went extinct in the 16th
                                 century with the fall of the Suri family.-- This is rare by itself – but
                                 even more interesting in the fact that this book contains an interlinear
                                 Persian commentary in extremely archaic Persian in an archaic script
                                 similar to Nasta‘liq but still much like Naskh.-- This translation is
                                 unknown and is definitely not Tabari, etc.-- Its language is quite
                                 archaic, and some words are completely unknown, even to the great
                                 dictionary, Burhani Qati‘.-- The margins also contain a short tafsir in
                                 the same Persian.-- The interlinear translation, punctuation, the
                                 name of God, chapter headings, etc. are red; the rest is in black.--
                                 Yellow has also been used for symbols marking the ends of verses.--
                                 Red and blue margin borders.-- When received, the margins of this
                                 book were terribly wormeaten (though the text had not suffered), but
                                 now all margins have been completely repaired with transparent
                                 plastic tape (made especially for books like this), and the

                                 commentary.-- The other 29 sections are complete, legible and in
                                 good condition.-- This book deserves research.-- It may be a copy of
                                 a lost medieval translation and tafsir.-- The script is 9th-10th century
                                 Hijri, and other copies the author has seen are not so old, lack the
                                 translation and tafsir, and are often quite fragmentary.

                Notes            An eighth century hijrah copy of Sa‘d al-Din Mas‘ud al-Taftazani‘s al-
                                 Sarh al-Mutawwal, his extended commentary on an abridgement of
                                 al-Sakkaki‘s Miftah al-‗Ulum.-- Composed in 748/1347 in Heral, this
                                 work is one of the most influential books on rhetorics written in Arabic
                                 and survives in countless copies.-- Copied by Muhammad b. Ibrahim
                                 b. Sulaiman al-Ladiqi for personal use, it may have been written at
                                 most some 40 years after al-Taftazani finished his work, since the
                                 date furnished by the copyist reads, 7.5 (unfortunately the second
                                 cipher has been erased), but not before 757 at which date madrasa
                                 of Sargatmis where the copying took place was just finished.-- This
                                 pious institution lies in the vicinity of the b. Tulun Mosque in Cairo.--

                                 work is treated in detail by D.B. MacDonald in EI I 88 ff.-- According
                                 to Brockelmann, GAL S II 280, the work was printed twice in Cairo
                                 and once in Cawnpore (1300), this last edition being in the margin of

                                 with, and it seems likely that this is a forgery.-- A note in Turkish at

                Description      307 fols.

                Notes            Tafsir al-Qur‘an.-- This work seems to represent one of, at least
                                 three or four existing redactions the authors or which are still not yet
                                 identified.-- The original text, says F. Sezgin (1:27) was by Ibn Abbas
                                 (d. 68-70/687-689) and al-Tabari had it incorporated fully in his Tafsir
                                 as it was transmitted by ‗Ali b. Abi Talha (d. 120/737).-- In the four
                                 redactions consulted so far (2 in Chester Beatty, 1 in the Qarawiyyin
                                 in Fas and of al-Firuzabadi), the Isnads (chains of transmission)
                                 which evantually leads to al-Kalbi and Ibn ‗Abbas, differ widely.-- Of
                                 the Berlin version (no. 732) Ahlward says: ―nach dieser Riwaje,
                                 welche sich auf Hisam b. Muhammad al-Kalbi (d. 204/819) Stutzt
                                 Ruhrt Dies Werk von ibn Abbas her – dessen Aechheit in dieser form
                                 aber misslich scheint. Die Redaction gehort wel dem 4 Jahrhundert
                                 der Higra an‖.-- Juding from few authorities quoted in the text like al-
                                 Hakim al-Nisaburi (d. 404/1013) and some commentaries by the
                                 author on controversial dogmatic points apparently directed against
                                 the Mu‘tazilites, we can safely assume that the

                                 author was a Shafi‘i and Ash‘ari scholar who lived in the 6th/12th
                                 either in Iraq or Khurasan. His views are clearly shown in his work in
                                 the following fols. 69a, 93a, 171b, 196a, 200a and 206b. Ibn ‗Abbas
                                 appears only twice in the whole work.-- The Reduction by the famous
                                 al-Firuzabadi (pub. in Cairo in 1316 A.H. under the title: al-Miqbas –
                                 etc) does not tally with our version neither do the rest (Ch.B. 4224,
                                 5465; Qar. 928, Berlin 742) in spite of the striking similarities which
                                 can be observed in the texts.-- The 1st fol. and the last are missing.
                                 Written in a fine scholarly Mamluki Naskh by a least three scribes.
                                 Paper and types of script is typical of the eight / 14C, most probably
                                 written in Syria or Egypt. The whole work appears to consists of three
                                 vols. of which this is the 1st containing the commentary Surah 1-18.

                                 discussed by the leading scholars of Qurtubah ( Cordoba ) in Spain
                                 in the last part of the 480-490 A.H period.-- The works of these man (
                                 e.g. Ibn 'Attab, Ibn Qattan ) have otherwise perished.-- The present
                                 book has been examined by scholars in Paris and appears to be
                                 otherwise unlisted anywhere.-- It has been gainstakingly repaired and
                                 rebound and is ready for use.-- Worthy of research.

                Description

                Notes            Important 12th/18th century astrological majmu'ah consisting of four
                                 unpublished texts of which the last two items are ascribed to
                                 Dorotheos and Hermes Trismegistos resprctively.-- The fist text of
                                 this collection is the Nihayat al-Idrak fi Asrar ‗Ulum al-Aflak by the
                                 seventh century hijrah Yemenite scholar Muhammad b. Abi Bakr al-
                                 Farisi(d. 677/1278).-- An incomplete copy of this work is described by
                                 Ahlwardt under number 5888; oter mss will be found in GAL I 474
                                 and its supplement, further in Ullmann, Die Natur- und
                                 Geheimwissenschaften im Islam, Leiden, 1972, p. 342. See also
                                 Kahhalah IX 117 and Zirikli, V155.-- Our copy was written 21 Rajab
                                 1135/1722, 15 years before the Berlin copy.-- Fols 63b to 94b contain
                                 in one hand three texts, respectively.-- An extract from Abu al-Hasan
                                 b. Sahl al-Ista'ili's Kitab fi ahkam al-nawalid; the incipit of our copy
                                 reads: "Bab al-nazar fi't-tarbiya: li yajun (sic) nazaruka fi auwal at-
                                 tarbiya min al-qamar wa ashab mutallatat at-tali'..." (fol. 63b).-- On
                                 fol. 83b it is followed by a short treatise ascribed to Dorotheos
                                 entitled Kitab fi ma'rifat aqdar al-mawalid which extends to fol.

                                   85b.-- The last text of our manuscript is styled ―Kitab Wada‘ahu
                                 Hirmis ra‘s al-Hukama‘ wa Intahalahu wa Intaqabahu wa Imtahanahu
                                 Min Asrar an-Nugum (?) ―fol. 85b), and starts off, directly after the
                                 Basmala, with the purpose of its composition: ―Ana wasif Laka min
                                 amr as-sa‘ada ma yugtabat bihi wa yu‘azzam ma‘ahu…‖.-- The text
                                 purports to prescribe to physicians the propitious times for
                                 medication and ends on fol. 94b with the heading ―cupping‖
                                 (higama), followed by the section ―on vomitting‖ (qai‘); ―yuhtar
                                 fi‘l—qai‘ kaun al-qamar fi‘t-taur (?) mas‘ud that al-ard..‘. The
                                 prescriptions found in this text are based on the observation of the
                                 stars used by the nomads in the deserts as guiding stars ―al-Kawakib
                                 al-Babaniya‖, fol. 85b.-- None of these three texts are found in
                                 Brockelmann‘s Geschichte der Arabischen Litteratur. M. Ullmann, in
                                 his Die Natur – und Geheimwissenschaften im Islam, Leiden, 1972,
                                 pp. 308, 280-1 and 290 respectively, knows of one copy only, kept in
                                 the Chester Beatty Library inder no. 5399, which contains these three
                                 texts in the same order; the Hermes text of that copy is not complete,
                                 however.-- More
                                 references to Hermes may be found in the index to Ullman‘s work
                                 and in GAS III 170-1, IV 42-3 and VII 50-8, especially p. 55 which
                                 mentions under no. 6a Kitab al-Asrar li Harmis used by Abu Ma‘sar in
                                 his Asrar an-Nugum. An account of the Hermetical tradition in EI III

                                 annotations in the margin in the hand of the scribe and perhaps of
                                 ‗Abd ar-Rahim as-Suwaidi, grandson of ‗Abd ar-Rhaman (GAL S II
                                 785, Kahhala V 212), whose ownership entry is found on the last
                                 page of this codex.--



                                 As a special feature may be mentioned that our copy retains the
                                 author‘s colophon dated 15 Shauwal, 1182, while our copy was
                                 completed within 2 weeks after that date. The copyist gives as his
                                 name Zakariya.-- The second item is also a commenary by al-
                                 Mausili, similarly on a text by al-‗Amili. It is entitled Sawanih al-
                                 Qariha fi Sarh as-Safiha, dealing with the use of the astrolabe.
                                 Brockelmann doest not mention this commentary; it is, however,
                                 mentioned as Sarh as-Safina li‘l-‗Amili in Kahhala, I.c.-- Of particular
                                 interest is the fact that this copy mentions explicity in the preliminary
                                 that the author saw himself abliged to revise and correct his text ―li
                                 Katrat Tashif an-Nussah‖ (fol. 68b line 16 – fol. 69a line 7); at the last
                                 page the text one also finds a remark to the effect that it had been
                                 collated (fol. 95a in the margin).-- Although undated the unsigned,
                                 one may identify the copyist with the Zakariya mentioned in item no.
                                 1 because of the similarity of the script.-- The text covers fols. 67b-
                                 95a and has 21 lines clearly legiable nashi per page, with some
                                 glosses and collations in the margin.--

                Notes            Fols. 97b to 116a contain the first part of ad-Damamini‘s ‗Uyun al-

                                 Brockelmann mentions three copies; it has not yet been edited. GAL

                                 Zakariya b. Molla (?), see nos. 1 and 2; the text covers fols. 117a to
                                 124b.-- Fols. 127b to 289a contain ‗Abd ar-Rahman as-Sufi‘s al-
                                 ‗Amal bi‘l-Astrulab.- F + GAS VI 215.-- The astronomoer ‗Abd ar-
                                 Rahman as-Sufi was court astronomer of the Buyid ruler ‗Adud ad-
                                 Daula. One of the most eminent scholars in the field among the
                                 Muslims, he is best known for his work on the fixed stars, the Kitab
                                 Suwar al-Kawakib.-- The Present text is a nearly complete copy of
                                 his work on the use of the astrolabe, arranged in 402 abwab. Of the
                                 seven known copies, only three are complete; our copy lacks the
                                 40th bab (fols. 151a-

                                 152b) and has some blank spaces on various pages, intended for
                                 drawings; otherwise, it is sound and clear legible in the handwriting of
                                 Zakariya b. Molla Gum‘a (?) and dated 1183/1769. The Haydarabad,
                                 1962. Edition was based on the (incompleted) copy of the
                                 Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris.-- Lastly we might mention the
                                 ownership-entry of Sulaiman as-Suwaidi on fol. 1a dated, 1228. This
                                 member of the famous Suwaidi family Baghdad is credited with a
                                 commentary on al-Khatibi‘s ar-Risala as-Samsiya and mentioned in
                                 Brockelmann S II 785 and Kahhala IV 274. Together with the
                                 ownership-entry of ‗Abd al-Rahim as-Suwaidi mentioned in the first
                                 item and his grandfather‘s acquaintance with al-Mausili this
                                 manuscript permits an interesting insight in the scholarly life of a
                                 great Baghdadi family.

                Notes            Small Ottoman manuscript: Dated‖ 1302/1886, concerned with
                                 talismans, the mysterious Qur‘anic lettercombinations (al-huruf al-
                                 muqatta‘at), an eulogy on the companions who fell at the Battles of
                                 Badr and Uhud, and an Ottoman-Turkish rendering of the Qasida
                                 Gulgulutiya ascribed to ‗Ali b. Abi Talib, with an accompanying Syriac-
                                 Arabic glossary.-- All texts embodied in this codex evidently were
                                 meant to invoke mediation and to secure immunity from evils.-- The
                                 First text (fols. 1-5), entitled al-Qasida as-Sarifa al-Maimuna al-
                                 Mubaraka, thus deals with the mysterious lettercombinations Taha,
                                 Yasin, Tasin & c., found at the head of some suras. The various uses
                                 to which there lettercombinations ca be put are set forth in an
                                 intricate poetic hotch-potch of nawadir (in arabic). These lines are
                                 accompanied by a magical quadrant (fol. 5) ascribed to ‗Ali b. Abi
                                 Talib.-- Fols. 6a to 12a contain first an Ottoman-Turkish rendering of
                                 the mysterious Qasida gulgulutiya commonly ascribed to ‗Ali, with a
                                 Syriac-Arabic glossary and Ottoman-Turkish instructions on

                                 fols 11a-12a. The gulgulutiya does not belong to the Diwan of Ali and
                                 is extant in only ten manuscripts. Fuat Sezgin does not record any
                                 Ottoman-Turkish translation (GAS II 280).-- From fol. 12b onwards.
                                 An alphabetical list of the companions who assisted at the Battle of
                                 Badr (12b-33b) and Uhud (33b-41a) is given, each time followed with
                                 the wish that God grants immunity from sickness and evils by virtue
                                 of the intercession of the martyrs of Badr and Uhud. Muhammad b.
                                 Ibrahim al-Hilmi az-Zaila‘i , the scribe of the whole codex, cites on
                                 fols. 13a-b both Ga‘far as-Sadiq and Ibn Saiyid an-Nas who
                                 recommended the intercession of these companions.--
