He hailed from a distinguished Shici family, was a pious man of great learning, and played a small but not insignificant role in one of the most momentous events in Muslim history. He represents the last gen- eration in which much of early Shiciliterature, soon to be irretrievably lost, was still available in its original form.

His extant works enable us partially to reconstruct his library and thus learn about the liter- ary interests and horizons of a Muslim scholar in the waning years of the cAbbasid era. Moreover, the large number of Shici and Sunni texts cited in his works, many of which have not come down to us, provide invaluable, and sometimes unique, information about medieval Arabic literature in general.

The technical data he supplies are unparalleled for his time and place and include such details as the age, size and format of manuscripts which he perused.

While IT is justly famous in the Shici world, he is relatively unknown to Western scholarship: Wiistenfeld, who came across his name in a manuscript and was apparently the first Western scholar to mention him, refers to "an otherwise unknown cAli b. Ibn Tawus";l and Ahlwardt was likewise unable to identify him. Berlin ,.
