Summary note
Incomplete abridgment in Arabic of Euclid's Elements, written on paper. The first 6 leaves (f. i-5) are replacements, written on different paper in a later hand. The replacement title page gives the incorrect title Taḥrīr Uqlīdis kāmil (Complete edition of Euclid), usually used to refer to the version edited by Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī, which this is not.
