Chapter Summary

The author named as Muhammad Amīn b. Mīrzā Zamān Bukhārī, most likely in the handwriting of someone other than the scribe of the manuscript. First examines the irregularity of the extant manuscripts of the work it is most likely that P, T, and S are descended from an archetype, although plausibly not directly, but by an intermediate or link which we have shown in stemma codicum by the use of the letters a, s, and d. In addition to the lack of a preface in P and the difference between T and S in that section, the transposition in T, and a very few lacunae or added passages in the MSS, it should also be pointed out that all three MSS contain the same manifest errors. This is significant for our statement regarding the common archetype and also for establishing the text.
