It begins with a review of studies on the collecti4on of Hamadhānī’s Maqāmāt, and recent research by the authors on the manuscript tradition of this work. It discusses how these three maqāmāt are located in approximately one-fourth of the manuscripts of Hamadhānī’s Maqāmāt, including a thirteenth/nineteenth century copy of a sixth/twelfth century manuscript, ms School of Oriental and African Studies 47280. The authors then provide a sample of the manuscripts utilized in the edition, a critical edition of the maqāmāt, and an analysis of their contents. The conclusion considers their authenticity in light of other maqāmāt attributed to Hamadhānī.
