Summary note
Abridgement of the author's commentary on al-Ṭughrāʼī's Lāmīyat al-ʻAjam. The commentary is variously known as Ghayth al-musjam fī sharḥ Lāmīyat al-ʻAjam and Ghayth al-adab alladhī insajama fī sharḥ Lāmīyat al-ʻAjam. Brockelmann has misidentified the abridger of the present text as the person who financed the 1897 edition. In this copy the abridgement is ascribed to ʻĀʼishah bint Yūsuf al-Bāʻūnīyah by a later hand on leaf 1b. Verses on leaves 1a, 21b-23a.
