Abstract:
Manuscript on medicine and pharmacology by Abū Saʻīd ibn Ibrāhīm al-Mutaṭabbib al-Maghribī, a little known physician and pharmacologist who seems to have lived in the 12th century. The name of the author is given as "Abū Saʻīd ibn Ibrāhīm al-Maghribī" in one of his medical/pharmacological manuscript works: "Kitāb fatʹḥ al-tadāwī min jamīʻ al-amrāḍ wa-al-shakāwī fī mufradāt al-ʻaqāqīr, [17--?]" which he dedicated to the Amīr Shams al-Dīn Abū ʻAbd Allāh Muḥammad Dhū al-Qarnayn ibn ʻAyn al-Dawlah, the son of Amīr Ghāzī who seems to be the Danishmendid ruler Dhū al-Qarnayn, d. 557 H/1162 CE (OCLC 244629229). In the printed editions with slightly different titles: "Taqwīm al-adwīyah al-mufradah, aw, al-Munjiḥ fī al-tadāwī min jamīʻ al-amrāḍ wa-al-shakāwī" as Ibrāhīm ibn Abī Saʻīd al-ʻAlāʼī (OCLC 785065773) and "Taqwīm al-adwīyah, aw, al-Munjiḥ fī al-tadāwī min ṣunūf al-amrāḍ wa-al-shakāwī" as Abī Saʻīd Ibrāhīm ibn Abī Saʻīd al-ʻAlāʼī al-Maghribī (OCLC 796221762). The manuscript was read and collated with the copyist (whose name is not mentioned), as mentioned in the colophon, by the physician ʻAbd Allāh ibn ʻAbd al-Muṭṭalib al-Khālidī (?) al-Khurāsānī (an obscure physician) on 23 Ramaḍan, 1021 H (17 November, 1612). Place of copying not mentioned, probably in Iran.
