Catalogue Note

Nasir al-Din Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Tusi (d.1274 AD) was a leading scholar in the field of mathematics, astronomy, geometry and theology. One of his most important contributions to the field of mathematics was his commentary of Euclid's Elements and Ptolomy's Almagest; the earliest copy of this work is dated 656 AH/1258 AD, in the British Library (P. Stocks and C. Baker (ed.), 2001, p.374, M.4). See also Brockelmann, GAL, I. 670 – 676; suppl. I. 924-933.
