Abstract

Ismā'īl Ǧorǧānī (A. D. 1040-1136) and his encyclopedic Ẕahīra-e Ḫwārazmšāhī ('The Treasure of the King of Ḫwārazm'). Ǧorǧānī's tenvolume encyclopedia, written in New Persian, was the first important work to employ this language for scientific-medical purposes. The scope of his 'Treasure of the King of Ḫwārazm', which is virtually unknown in Europe, is indicated both by its arrangement and by its contents. The latest information concerning the manuscripts currently known in Eastern and Western libraries is included and biographical data on Ǧorǧānī's life and other writings conclude the contribution. A preliminary study of Ǧorǧānī's Ẕahīra, namely the materia medica (Books IX-X), is available in Fariborz Moattar, 'Ismā'īl Ǧorǧānī and his significance for the History of Iranian Medicine and Pharmacy with especial Reference to his Rôle in the Formation of New Persian' (Dissertation, Marburg 1972).
