Undoubtedly, the London copy is the most ancient. Nevertheless, we made an attempt to show, as pointed out below, that a significant part of investigators tended to ignore the rest of the copies of Qisas ar-Rabghuzi, in particular, those kept at the Institute of Oriental Studies named after al-Beruni (Tashkent), both under edition and investigation. Paradoxically as it may seem, even the Uzbek editors and researchers of Qiasas ar-Rabghuzi preferred to use just the British copy, taking virtually no notice of the Tashkent copies .
Meanwhile, we have uncovered that in the very place (i.e. Institute of al-Beruni) the most ancient copy, amongst those known at present, is kept. (more about this below).
Thus, the findings and preliminary studies of Ch.Rieu on ar-Rabghuzi were of great importance for that period, as it was this scholar who introduced the most ancient copy of Qisas ar-Rabghuzi, known for that period, into scientific circulation.
