Catalogue Note

'Abd al-'Aziz ibn Badr al-Din abu ‘Ali Muhammed ibn Ibrahim 'Izzaddin ibn Jama’a al-Kinani al-Shafi’i was born in Damascus, Syria, in 1294 AD. He became Qadi in Egypt in 1337 until 1348, when he moved to Mecca where he died in 1366. Another contemporaneous copy of this manuscript, dated only ten years earlier (735 AH/1335 AD) is now in Cairo, Ind, Off. 1038. See also C. Brockelmann, GAL II. 86 (4) and GAL S, II. 81 no.3.

The present manuscript was produced during the lifetime of the author in 735 AH/1345 AD, and it seems likely that the author himself inscribed the manuscript on the title page, as witnessed by very similar hand-writing found in a colophon published in Khair-ud-din ibn Muhammad, Al-A'Alam, Vol.IV, Beirut, 2007, p.26.
