The Linden-Museum (Museum of Ethnology, Stuttgart, Germany) possesses an important collection of Islamic manuscripts. One of these (ms. A 41878 L / L4328/0002) is ascribed to the famous calligrapher Yāqūt al-Musta'simū (7th / 13th). This manuscript was aquired in the nineties, when it was bought from an art dealer. Facing the situation that it is very difficult to attribute manuscripts to Yāqūt and his school, the following survey aims to present this manuscript for further research on this key figure in the calligraphy tradition and to indicate some basic problems when dealing with Yāqūt al-Musta'simī.
