This article provides the editio princepsof three previously unknown maqāmātattributed to Badīʿ al-Zamān al-Hamadhānī (d. 398/1008). It begins with a review of studies on the collecti4on of Hamadhānī’s Maqāmāt, and recent research by the authors on the manuscript tradition of this work. It discusses how these three maqāmātare located in approximately one-fourth of the manuscripts of Hamadhānī’s Maqāmāt, including a thirteenth/nineteenth century copy of a sixth/twelfth century manuscript, msSchool of Oriental and African Studies 47280. The authors then provide a sample of the manuscripts utilized in the edition, a critical edition of the maqāmāt, and an analysis of their contents. The conclusion considers their authenticity in light of other maqāmātattributed to Hamadhānī.
