Description
في كلمات مفتاحية., تظهر في النص خصوصية تأشير بعض المصطلحات بخط في أعلاها., The authorship of Müteferrika in this compilation on magnetic effects can be supported with a good reason. The smallest book published in his press is a selection of extracts and chapters from various Latin works. It was probably the importance of magnetism in navigation and thus indirectly in the modernization of the fleet that called Müteferrika’s attention to the topic. Has a doble-page illustration of the marine compass and the inclinatory needle compass., Watson, William J. "Ibrāhīm Müteferriḳa and Turkish Incunabula". Journal of the American Oriental Society, 88:3 (Jul./Sep. 1968), pp. 435-441., http://muteferrika.mtak.hu/en/nyomda.htm

Description
The author, Abû Tâlib Muhammad ibn Abû Bakr Ibrâhîm, mostly known as ʻAṭṭār, "the druggist" (), was born in 513 (1119 AD) near Nishapur and was probably killed by Mongols in 627 (1230 AD). "He was, as his common appellation implies, a pharmacist by profession, and kept a store where he himself prescribed and prepared drugs. Little accurate information on the particulars of his life is available. He was a great scholar and poet, and devoted much of his time to the study of mysticism. He is regarded as a holy man by the mystics [...] The Pandnâmah, or the ‘Book of Advice’, is the most popular of his poems. It consists of moral precepts composed in mathnawî rhyme. It has been printed several times in Lahore, Calcutta, Tehran, and Istanbul" (Muhammed Ahmed Simsar, Oriental Manuscripts of the John Frederick Lewis Collection in the Free Library of Philadelphia, 1937, pp. 94ff.). The present edition is unknown to Simsar; the catalogue of the Bavarian State Library lists merely the 1262 (1846) Bulaq edition. –, Very clean, with an interlinear note in Arabic red ink on p. 26. Binding slightly rubbed and bumped; old calculations in black ink on final endpaper.
