Abstract

The author describes manuscript no.478 in the collection of the Osler Library, of McGill University, which was a personal copy of the scribe Abū al-Qāsim al-Abarqūhī made from a model belonging to his teacher Burhān al-Dīn al-Ibrī (d. 743/1343). The codex, copied in 761/1360, contains a reading certificate granted to al-Abarqūhī and a copy of the certificate given to al-Ibrī by his teacher Qub al-Dīn al-Shīrāzī (d. 710/1311), as well as glosses attributed to the latter, his teacher and his teacher’s teacher, Naīr al-Dīn al-ūsī (d. 672/1274). This witness is a good example of the importance given to the study and transmission of philosophical texts in the 8/14th century Iran, in general, and to Ibn Sīnā’s al-Ishārāt wa-al-tanbīhāt, in particular.
