Abstract Suhrawardī’s (d. 587 AH) Kitāb al-Talwīḥāt lies at the basis of his philosophy of Illumination. The importance of this work was such that three commentaries were written on it in a time span of fifty years. From among these three commentaries the one by Ibn Kammūna (d. 683 AH) stands out. This article contains a comprehensive review of the three existing editions of this commentary, and concludes that we are still in need of a reliable edition. Also in this article: MS Leiden Or. 578 identified as the oldest dated copy of Shahrazūrī’s (d. ca 687 AH) commentary on the Talwīḥāt; and also: the first inventory ever of all the known copies of the Talwīḥāt.
