About this record

Content

Arabic version of the Data (Δεδομένα; كتاب المعطيات) by the mathematician Euclid of Alexandria (Εὐκλείδης; أقليدس; fl. 300 BC). The text was translated by Isḥāq ibn Ḥunayn (إسحق بن حنين; d. ca 910), revised by Thābit ibn Qurrah (ثابت بن قرة; d. 901) and is presented here in the edition (تحرير) of Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī (d. 1274).

The diagrams are collected on a fold out (f. 35r) following the text.
