An Arabic manuscript:

كتاب الفصول
لرئيس الحكما بقراط مع شرح أفضل المتاخرين ابن ابي صادق

Sharh Fusul Bokrat

The sacking of Baghdad by the Mongols in 1258 resulted in the destruction of many libraries containing priceless manuscripts. The surviving manuscripts and calligraphers were taken by the invaders to work in the Mongols' courts in Central Asia. The library possesses and early copy of Abdul-Qasim Abdul-Rahman bin 'Ali ibn Abi Sadiq's Sharh (MS:610:B93fA), a medical treatise dated A.H. 653 / A.D. 1252 at Samarqand.
