Ta'liq is a journal of Ibn Tawq, a notary and court witness, who lived in Damascus in the second half of the 15th and the first decade of the 16th centuries. The manuscript of the journal was found in the Damascene Madrasat Adh-Dhahiriyya, a former seat of the Syrian National Library, some 40 years ago, but is still almost unknown among scholars. The journal contains an interesting material on everyday life of all strata of society living in Damascus at the turn of the 16th century, especially those who are rarely mentioned in other examples of Arabic historical literature. The aim of the article is to make an analysis of Ta'liq and assess its value as a source in ethnohistorical studies on the Middle East during the Mamluk rule.
