Abstract The previously unidentified manuscript, MS Cod. 366/262a, which is preserved in the private library of the Dominican Priory in Vienna, is a defective copy of Kamāl al-Dīn Ḥosayn Vāʿeẓ Kāšefī’s (d. 910/1504-05) Aḫlāq-e moḥsenī. Transcribed before 978/1570, this copy belongs among the early extant manuscripts of Kāšefī’s treatise on ethics and governance, originally composed at the Timurid court in Herat. The textual variations that appear in this manuscript when collated with one of the earliest existing copies, MS Diez A quart. 77 (dated 908/1503) held by the Berlin Staatsbibliothek, suggest that the text underwent several revisions which should be taken into account for any future edition that may be envisaged.
