We know no more about this author than what is mentioned in Paul Sbath’s Al-fihris, namely that Ibn Ghubraʾīl (which Sbath spells Ghibrīl) was ‘an Orthodox Copt of Cairo who lived [there] in 1627’. The epithet al-muʿallim that precedes the author’s name should be understood as ‘the learned man’ and not as ‘the teacher’.
