<p style='text-align: justify;'> An incomplete copy of the <i>Intikhāb-i Tārīkh al-Ḥukamā'</i> (Selections from the History of the Sages), also known as the <i>Qūl al-Ḥukamā'</i> (Quotations of the Sages), an abridgment of quotations by philosophers and historical figures, originally anonymously compiled in Muḥammadābād (Bidar) for presentation to the Deccan Sultanate ruler ‘Abd Allāh Quṭb Shāh (b. 1614, r. 1626–1672) in 1054 AH (1644–45 CE). Passages derive from the <i>Tarjumah-’i Tārīkh al-Ḥukamā</i> (Translation of the History of the Sages), a Persian translation of a 13th-century Arabic text <i>Nuzhat al-Arwāḥ wa-Rawḍat al-Afrāḥ</i> of Shams al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Maḥmūd Shahrazūrī, completed by Maqṣūd ‘Alī Tabrīzī (fl. 1605) at the behest of the Mughal prince Salīm, later Emperor Jahāngīr (b. 1569 r. 1506–1626). Completed on 25 Ẕī-al-Qa‘dah 1084 AH (3 Mar. 1674 CE), this manuscript would appear to date about twenty years after the original.</p>
