About this item


A short anonymous treatise on geometry in the form of a commentary on an unknown work. The tables said to follow the text (see f. 28r, line 18, transcribed below) does not appear in this manuscript.

Because the text is almost entirely unpointed, the transcriptions below are approximate.


Begins (f. 25v, lines 2-4):

قال ولما كان استخراج القمر [؟] من الأوتار والأوتار من المقر شيئًا إنما نقدر عليه

ههنا [؟] بالجدول من الحساب أخذناه عن الجداول المثبتة في الزيجات هي القمر [؟]

أقول اعلم أن حساب المنجمين لما أرادوا تقدير الدوائر على الأفلاك وغيرها ...

Ends (f. 28r, lines 16-18):

... ولا ينافي لك أن ينقص من نصف والاصدار الا استكرم الخلف على ما يظهر

لك عن الإمتحان كما كان الزيادة في المسئلة المذكورة في ساص [؟] الدائرة غير ممكن

أيضًا [؟] وقد سبق بحقيقة وثتلوه الجداول
