dc.description.abstract This article presents a critical edition and study of a 17th/18th-century poetry collection that had previously been mistaken for al-Ta̠ʿālibī’s lost Kitāb al-Ġilmān. It provides a codicological analy- sis of Berlin MS Wetzstein II 1786 in which the poetry collection is contained and also explains and corrects long-held misconceptions regarding al-Ta̠ʿālibī’s connection with the text. Finally, the article situates this poetry collection in the context of Mamluk- and Ottoman-era epigram anthologies and the critical apparatus to the edition demonstrates the key features of inter- textuality and popularity that characterised these poetry collections. en
dc.description.sponsorship I would like to thank K. Münchow and Christoph Rauch of the Staats- bibliothek zu Berlin for all their help, both during my visit and through correspondence, and to acknowledge the permission of the Staatsbibliothek to publish the text of Berlin MS Wetzstein II 1786, f. 63b-67b. The Sub-Faculty of Near and Middle Eastern Studies, Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford provided me with a grant to help subvent the cost of examining MSS in Berlin as well as the cost of obtaining reproductions of MSS from the Staatsbibliothek (Berlin) and the British Library (London). This research was supported by the University of Oxford Clarendon Fund Scholarship. en
