This second commentary on Muhammed ibn Umail's Hall ar-rumuz (See CALA I) gives important additions and clarifications that had become possible in the light of other texts of Ibn Umail and authors quoted by him, which at the time when Dr. von Franz wrote her first commentary (see CALA I A), were either poorly translated into Latin or not yet available in any European language.
