Author introduces the Arabic manuscript collection in Liège, Belgium, which is not as widely known as it deserves to be. She singles out one particular manuscript, an 11/16th century copy of the well-known work Kitāb al-Faraj bad aš-Šidda, by the Irāqī qāī at-Tanūī (327-384/939-994). She describes the manuscript and places her detailed description within the framework of the modern scholarly and bibliographical references on Abbasid literature in general and on recent developments in codicology and paleography in particular. She also discusses the relationship of the Liège manuscript with some of the printed editions of the Kitāb al-Faraj bad aš-Šidda.
