    Dr. Tritton in a letter to the editor, says: “The chief reason for not indicating sources is that much of the material is taken from an unpublished MS. I made a copy from a microfilm which showed that the original was not complete and the leaves not in order.” The work referred to is Kitāb al-Hafawāt by Muh. b. Hilāl Ibn al-Sāb?.
