The Ma'rifetnameh is an encyclopaedia of cosmological topics assembled by Erzurumlu Ibrahim Hakki in 1756-57. Alongside discussions on eschatology, celestial and terrestrial geography are also discussed and represented in several maps and diagrams. The planispheric drawings were drawn by a surveyor named only as Mustafa and were based on the Dutch cartographer Joan Blae's (d.1673) Atlas Major.

Two further copies of Hakki's Ma'rifetnameh, both dating from the first quarter of the nineteenth century, can be found in the British Library (MS.Or.12964) and Nasser D. Khalili Collection, London (see Rogers 1995, pp.121 & 123, no.74). Four very similar manuscripts to the present lot were sold in these rooms, 7 October 2015, lot 264; 22 April 2015, lot 109; 24 April 2013, lot 49 and 6 April 2011, lot 216.
