Notes: A critical edition of a medical treatise by Subḥān Qulï, the Khan of Bukhara. The treatise is known from nine extant manuscript copies.The first known manuscript copy, discovered by the scholar Ármin Vámbéry, did not carry any title, so Vámbéry assigned the treatise the title of Ṭabīblik kitābï (ṬK), and it is by this title that scholars know this particular manuscript copy. The manuscript discovered by Vámbéry is now housed in the Oriental Collection of the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, under the number Török O. 38. The original treatise was comprised of 53 chapters. The Ṭabīblik kitābï manuscript copy of the treatise does not include the full version of the original treatise, the first lines of chapter 21 are accidentally repeated, and the copy is missing chapters 22 to 26. Around 2011, the editor of this critical edition travelled to Uzbekistan and located a previously unknown edition of the treatise in Tashkent. The Tashkent treatise is entitled Ḫulāsat al-ḥukamāʼ (ḪḤ), and it survives in 8 manuscript copies stored in the Al-Biruni Institute of Oriental Studies of the Uzbek Academy of Sciences, under the catalog numbers: 436/III; 715/II; 2892/I; 5054/I; 7792; 7793; 10671/IV; and 12229/II. The editor of this critical edition of the treatise feels that it is unlikely that any of the existing manuscript copies, neither the single copy known as Ṭabīblik kitābï, nor the 8 copies with the title Ḫulāsat al-ḥukamāʼ, date to the lifetime of the author, Subḥān Qulï. This critical edition includes a detailed introduction; a transcription of the original text for philological purposes; an annotated English translation; complete lexica of vocabulary, herbs and plants, minerals and chemicals, diseases and related terms, measures and units, personal names and Qur'anic verses; as well as facsimiles of 2 of the manuscript copies. The two facsimile copies represented are the ṬK manuscript (Török O. 38), and the ḪḤ manuscript with catalog number 436/III. The manuscript used for the transcription and the translation of the treatise is the Ṭabīblik kitābï (ṬK) copy, with the missing chapters 22 to 26 taken from the Ḫulāsat al-ḥukamāʼ (ḪḤ) manuscript copy with catalog number 436/III--Cited from Introduction and back cover.
Description: ix, 452 pages : facsimiles ; 24 cm.
Series Title: Brill's Inner Asian library, v. 32.
Responsibility: edited, translated and annotated by László Károly.

Abstract:

This is the first serious study on seventeenth-century Central Asian medicine that provides a major resource for the linguistic and cultural history of Central Asia. The richly annotated English translation makes the edition useful for readers without special knowledge on medical history and Turkic studies. The author offers a critical edition of a seventeenth-century Central Asian medical treatise written by Sayyid Subhan Quli Khan Muhammad Bahadur khan in the Chagatay language. The edition includes a detailed introduction, a transcription of the original text for philological purposes, an annotated English translation, complete lexica of vocabulary, herbs and plants, minerals and chemicals, diseases and related terms, measures and units, personal names and Qur'anic verses, and finally two manuscripts in facsimile--Back cover.
