[Ikhtiṣār min al-maqālāt min kitāb Uqlīdis]; [manuscript].

Title:
[Ikhtiṣār min al-maqālāt min kitāb Uqlīdis] [manuscript].
Abstract:
Epitome or abridgement in Arabic of Euclid's Elements, written on paper. The title page (f. i), first 4 leaves of text (f. 1-4), and a blank leaf (f. 5) are replacements, written on different paper in an 18th-century hand. The replacement title page gives the incorrect title Taḥrīr Uqlīdis kāmil (Complete commentary on Euclid); the manuscript does not contain a commentary.
