Dissertation Abstract: 

Our dissertation is based on a part of the poetrical work in the form
of mesnev� (I.copy 1b-149a, M.copy 1b-180a sheets) called Hikmet-n�me
which was written by Antepli Ibr�him ibn-i B�l� in the 15th century
Hicr� 893 (Mil�d� 1488) to the attribution to Memluk Sultan
Kayitbay. In this part astronomy, angels, four elements in nature,
mountains, seas, islands, countries, cities and towns, jewels, fishes,
rivers, water sources, features and organs of human etc. take place in
order of importance. Ibn-i B�l� reflected his own and previous
quotations from classical sources as well as his hearings and
observations in his masterpiece.

In our dissertation copies in the library of Istanbul University and
copies by Prof.Dr. Muhammet Yelten have been studied on. The copy of
University was priorly taken into consideration and transcription of
the copy was done. The differences between this copy and
Prof.Dr. Muhammet Yelten's were determined in the footnote.
Dictionary-index was made of the text reinforced in terms of reading
and the language features of the text (phonetic-morphologic-semantics)
have been dealt with the help of sources that emerged from all this
