Footnotes

  • Provenance
    The collection of the late Jafar Ghazi.

    The colophon states that the author completed the work on the 3rd Rajab 867/23rd March 1463. This manuscript can be considered an early copy written in the lifetime of the author, who died in 1474. His name written in the title page and colophon implies that he was still alive. This title is not listed in Brockelmann, but a work of the same subject, entitled al-Mukhtasar al-mufid fi'l tarikh is given in the list: see C. Brockelmann, GAL, II, 114; S. II, 140.
