The only known manuscript of Ibn al-Haytham’s Completion of the Conics is found in the codex Genel 1706 in the Il Halk Kütüphanesi in Manisa (Turkey). A microfilm of the entire codex is in the Teheran University Library. The following description is based on a copy of this microfilm, which was kindly made available to me by the staff of the Teheran University Library through the intermediary of Dr. J. Hamadanizadeh (Teheran).
