Material Type: Internet resource
Document Type: Archival Material, Internet Resource
All Authors / Contributors: Avicenna
OCLC Number: 212624243
Notes: Manuscripts appear to be compiled from various sources, some no later than the 14th century (C.E.) and others from the 19th century.
Volumes bound in matching embossed brown leather with marbled paper on interior flap.
The works appear to contain the text that comprises the Bulaq, 1877 edition of the Canon. The texts are in at least three different hands, and the manuscripts were probably assembled from various sources in order to create a more complete version of the text. Quires may be incorrectly ordered. Vol. 1 in particular is filled with marginalia written in Arabic by various hands. The marginalia seem to be glosses from commentaries.
Materials found in association with the Mss stated that a note in Arabic on a fly leaf indicated the volumes were owned by someone in Jerusalem in 1700, but the one observed ownership name and date is 1218 of the Hijra era or 1803 C.E.
