abstract

A unique manuscript, written in Damascus (in 1359), sheds light on author-copyist relation. Tağ al-Subkī and al-Ṣafadī, two well-known scholars and authors, met at a private house and produced a legal compendium, which became popular among Muslim jurists. The inspection of this unicum and its comparison with printed editions of Ǧamʿ al-ǧawāmiʿ enriches our data on book production in the Mamlūk Sultanate.
