This volume contains a facsimile reproduction of "Ms New York Public Library, Volume 51985A," a heavily damaged multitext codex of 252 leaves which comprises seven individual works: an incomplete copy of Khiḍr b. Muḥammad b. ʿAlī al-Rāzī al-Ḥablirūdī's (d. ca. 850/1447) longer commentary on the ʿAllāma al-Ḥillī's al-Bāb al-ḥadī ʿashar, Jāmiʿ al-durar fī sharḥ al-Bāb al-ḥādī ʿashar; several works by Ibn Abī Jumhūr al-Aḥsāʾī (d. after 906/1501), viz. Qabs al-iqtidāʾ fī sharāʾiṭ al-iftāʾ wa-l-istiftāʾ, Kāshifat al-ḥāl ʿan aḥwāl al-istidlāl, and al-Masālik al-jāmiʿiyya fī sharḥ al-Alfiyya, which were copied during the author's lifetime; Bahāʾ al-Dīn Muḥammad b. al-Ḥusayn al-ʿĀmilī's ("al-Shaykh al-Bahāʾī", d. 1030/1621) Tafsīr sūrat al-fātiḥa, or al-ʿUrwa al-wuthqā; and two works by Bahāʾ al-Dīn Muḥammad b. Ḥasan al-Iṣfahānī "al-Fāḍil al-Hindī" (d. 1137/1725) which are not attested elsewhere—a commentary (ḥāshiya) on the chapter on the imamate of Saʿd al-Dīn al-Taftāzānī's (d. 792/1390) Sharḥ al-Maqāṣid, and a commentary on the Nahj al-ḥaqq wa-kashf al-ṣidq by the ʿAllāma al-Ḥillī.
