Lot Essay

'Ali bin Muhammad bin Aydamar al-Jaldaki was born in Jaldak in Khurasan, near Mashhad. He travelled through the Middle East and is known to have composed works in Damascus and in Cairo where he died in 1341-42 AD. His name appears to vary according to the sources but he appears as Aydamar bin 'Abd Allah in the present work. See Al-Zerekly, Al-A'lam, Biographical Dictionary, Beirut, 2007, vol.V, p.5, where both this author and this work are listed.
