Nikāt muta`allaqah bi-sharḥ al-Maṭāli` wa-ḥawāshih al-sharīfah

 نكات متعلقة بشرح المطالع وحواشيه الشريفة

 author  Muḥammad ibn Pīr Aḥmad al-shahīr bi-Ibn Arghūn al-Shīrāzī

The present work is a supergloss on the gloss (ḥāshiyah) by al-Sayyid al-Sharīf al-Jurjānī (d. 816 AH / 1413 CE) on the Lawāmiʿ al-asrār by Qutb al-Dīn al-Taḥtānī al-Rāzī (d. 766 AH / 1364 CE), being in turn a commentary on a book of logic entitled Maṭāliʿ al-anwār by Sirāj al-Dīn Maḥmūd al-Urmawī (d. 682 AH / 1283 CE). Written for the library of the Ottoman Sultan Selim I, it was completed in Bursa in 918 AH / 1512 CE, the year of that ruler's accession to the throne. The text, which opens with an illuminated headpiece (fol. 1b), is written in naskh script mostly in black ink with certain words, such as qawluhu and aqūlu, in red. It is possible that the scribe is also the author of this work. The brown goatskin binding with central lobed oval and pendants with arabesque designs is contemporary with the manuscript.
