Beards of paradise

My dissertation on Ibn Tulun (abstract: ttps://huji.academia.edu/ChaimNissim)  includes a list of his writings (following his autobiography al-Fulk al-Mashhun fi Ahwal Ibn Tulun). You can find the above title on the list but as far as I know it is lost indeed.

Ibn tulun has (in the same list) also epistle named "I'timad al-Raghib fi Halq al-Sharib" but I suppose it is lost too.
