Chapter Summary

The first manuscript containing Sābūr ibn Sahl's dispensatory was registered in 1866 by the Bavarian curator Joseph Aumer and it remained, for more than two generations, the only known textual witness, attracting little scholarly attention. In 1938, Paul Sbath discovered a second manuscript in a Syrian private library; three further manuscripts from Iran were found, respectively, in 1960 by Ṣalāḥaddīn al-Munağğid, in 1962 by Muḥammad Taqī Dāniš-Pažūh and Īrağ Afšār, and in 1970 by Fuat Sezgin; the last manuscript on current record was described by Rudolf Sellheim in 1976. There are a couple of articles by Sami Hamarneh who in 1961 dealt with the Munich manuscript and in 1979 with the three Tehran manuscripts.
