Towards the middle of the 8th/14th century, a scholar of Almeria, Abū Uthmān Sa'd b. Abū Ja'far Ahmad Ibn Luyūn al-Tujjbī (d. 750/1349) wrote his Kitāb Ibdā' al-malāha wa-inhā' al-rajāha fī usūl sinā'at al-filāha. The work of an amateur, it is an abridgement in verse, based essentially on Ibn Bassāl and al-Tighnarī; but it also contains certain valuable information which the author recorded in the words of local practitioners.
