Summary note
Elegant copy of a commentary on the Qaṣīdat al-Burdah by Būṣīrī (d. between 694 and 696/1294 or 5 and 1296 or 7). This copy is apparently an autograph copy. However several mss. do bear the same date, which might well be the date of completion of the tabyīḍ of the commentary and not of the copy itself. See VOHD. Bd. XVII, B, 4, no. 148, with a colophon identical to the one in this copy.

European paper with watermark (grape; name) ; frame-ruled. Occasional marginal annotatios, apparently by the same hand as the main text. On fol. 25b and 32b: long quotation on the margin, attributed to Raḍī al-Dīn al-Muqaddasī.

  • Incipit: بسم ... ان ايمان ما يرشح به صدر الكلام واحسن ما يوشح به عقد النظام حمدا لله ذى الجلال والاكرام والافضال والانعام ثم الصلوة ... وبعد فيقول العبد الفقير الى مولاه الغنى محمد بن مصطفى المدرني عامله الله الحفى بلطفه الخفى لما كان بردة المديح فى نعت تبى فصيح للشيخ ... شرف الدين ابى عبد الله محمد بن سعيد البوصيرى المصرى كساه الله تعالى جلابيب غفرانه ... معتبرة لدى اولى الابصار ... [2ب] ... امن تذكر جيران بذى سلم ... بدم يعنى هل السبب تذكرك الخلان الكائنين فى ذلك المكان
  • Explicit: والنغم بالفتحتين الصوت الحسن اى ايذن لتلك السحب ما دامت الصبّا تُميل قضبان البان وما دامت الحادى يُطرب العيس بالنغم والالحان الحمد لله على التمام وعلى نعمه العظام ومننه الجسام ونسئله حسن الختام وان يحشرنا فى زمرة نبينا محمد عليه الصلوة والسلام وعلى اله واصحابه البررة الكرام قد استراح قدم قلم الحقير محّمد المدرنى الفقير من تعب تبييض هذا الشرح الخطير عشى الاحد يوم العشرين من شهر شعبان المعظم المنتظم فى سلك شهور سنة ست وثلثين ومائة والف
