Manuscript description
Full copy of this work in four volumes. Like many other manuscripts in the Taymūr collection this is a very late copy on modern paper. Naskh script. Black ink with red overlining for keywords. Writing surface more or less consistently 178x96mm. All the volumes bear a note informing of the fact that this copy was updated with information taken from a manuscript copy of al-Biqāʿī’s later abridgement “ʿUnwān al-ʿUnwān”, which is noted to be present in the Dār al-kutub under the shelfmark Tārīkh 1474. It is mentioned that this later work updated much information from the original work, especially adding death dates of recently deceased persons. Throughout the volumes one thus finds several marginal notes stating that particular information was taken from that abridgement. However, on p. 180 of the fourth volume the copyist Maḥmūd Ṣidqī notes that he could not continue to add such information as consistently as the order of the manuscript of the ʿUnwān al-ʿUnwān was different to that of the original work. Additionally there are correction notes in pencil. The copy that was used as the basis for this copy is not an original manuscript in the Dār al-kutub, but a manuscript from Astana from which a microfilm copy exists in the Dār al-kutub (shelfmark 1001 Tārīkh). Taymūr seals on the first page of each volume. There are colophons only at the end of volumes two and four (both dated to 1345/1926).
