About this item

Content

An exhaustive treatise on the magical arts based upon writings attributed to Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Galen as well as more recent authorities. The author's name is given in full as Abū al-Qāsim Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad, known as al-‘Irāqī Khusrawshāh (أبو القاسم أحمد ابن محمد المعروف بالعراقي بخسروشاه [!], the last name should probably be read al-Khusrawshāhī [الخسروشاهي]; f. 52, lines 20-21). The treatise was written in the latter half of the 13th century since its preface mentions the reigning Mamluk Sultan, al-Malik al-Ẓāhir Rukn al-Dīn (i.e. Baybars I al-Bunduqdārī, r. 658/1260-676/1277; f. 50v, line 6), his son Barakah (f. 51r, line 18), and his vizier Bahā’ al-Dīn (f. 51r, line 5; see Holmyard's introduction to Abu al-Qāsim al-ʿIrāqī's, Kitāb al-ʿilm al-muktasab, 1923, p. 3). It begins with a dedicatory preface (ff. 50v-51r, line 20), and an introduction that includes a list of the treatises thirty chapters (أبواب; ff. 51r, line 20-52v, line 3).

Begins (f. 50v, lines 2-3):الحمد لله الذي أطلع لنا من مشارق الأرض شموسًا لا يتم خط سياح الملكوالشريعة المحمدية الأبهم وهديهم من الضلالة لحفظ رعيته من المؤمنين

Ends (f. 87v, lines 13-17):اعلم يا أخي أن هذه الحروف يتعلق بالكواكب السبعةالسيارة ومعرفة خواصها وما يناسب كل حرفمنها إلى أي معدن فافهم ومعك الله لطاعتهوجنبك عن معصيته والله حسبيونعم الوكيل
