Ms. nº 2804, Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (Vajda, 1953: 342)
Ibn al-‘Awwām

Ms. no. 2804 (A.F. 912) comprises the first part of the agricultural treatise of Ibn al-‘Awwām, Al-falāḥa al-andalusīya. It seems to be the direct ancestor of the manuscript of the Escurial edited by Banqueri [1802], and was no doubt referred to by Clément-Mullet; a critical edition of Ibn al-‘Awwām is needed more than ever.
