This article presents a critical edition and study of a 17 th/18th-century poetry collection that had previously been mistaken for al-Ta'?libÄ«'s lost Kit?b al-?ilm?n. It provides a codicological analysis of Berlin MS Wetzstein II 1786 in which the poetry collection is contained and also explains and corrects long-held misconceptions regarding al-Ta'?libÄ«'s connection with the text. Finally, the article situates this poetry collection in the context of Mamluk-and Ottoman-era epigram anthologies and the critical apparatus to the edition demonstrates the key features of intertextuality and popularity that characterised these poetry collections.
