Kitāb al-Miṣbāḥ de Jaldaki (s. XIV).

Nick Harris, a Ph. D. candidate in religious studies at Penn, presents the University of Pennsylvania Library’s LJS Ms 441 from the Schoenberg Collection, Kitāb al-Miṣbāḥ wa-nuzʹhat al-arwāḥ fī ʻilm al-miftāḥ fī al-ḥikmah al-Ilāhīyah wa-al-ṣināʻah al-falsafīyah wa al-nātijah al-ʻalīyah…, written in Arabic, probably in Aleppo, Syria, ca. 1562. This 14th-century treatise on alchemy is based on the work of the 8th-century alchemist and chemist Jābir ibn Ḥayyān, copied in A.H. 970 (1562), followed by a pseudo-Platonic work on alchemy with commentary (tafsīr) attributed to Jābir ibn Ḥayyān.
