Özet

Siret was written by an author named Muhammed in the 15th century. There is not any information about Muhammad in the sources examined. Siret has many copies in Turkey and abroad. In addition, stone prints were made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of the copies have missing parts to detect its writer. Some of the copies whose writer is known have been recorded in different names due to carelessness. As a result, the name of the work and the writer's name have been recorded in twenty-one and nineteen different ways, respectively. Because of this confusion, some studies conducted on the work are inaccurate. It is understood that while copies and stone prints were being created, some additions and subtractions were made to the work. This situation makes it difficult to put forward a solid text. In the article, information will be given about the studies on Siret and the records of the identified copies will be evaluated. In addition, the deficiencies in the records will be investigated and the reasons for the wrong records will be explained.
