Manuscripts are considered as one of the cultural-historical worthy works and the main elements of cultural identity of every culture and country. Investigating these works brings about enrichment of cultural, historical and scientific backgrounds. Accordingly, the aim of this study is to introduce the Ottoman territory Iranian physician Hilmi al-Amasi and his work, the medical manuscript of Golshan Ziba. This study was conducted by library method and literature review. Initially, the biography of Hilmi al-Amasi was studied using first-hand sources and manuscripts. Subsequently, the structure and content of the medical manuscript Golshan Ziba were investigated and extracted. Hilmi al-Amasi is a lexicographer, jurist, and poet of the 9th century in Ottoman realm. He was educated by Serefeddin Sabuncuoglu and wrote compilations in Turkish, Arabic and Persian languages and he offered the Golshan Ziba medical poetic to Fatih Sultan Mehmed. In this work, Hilmi has mentioned Iranian physicians such as Ali ibn al-Abbas al-Ahvazi, Abu al-Hasan al-Tabari al-Taranji, and Najib ad-Din Samarqandi. It seems that Hilmi al-Amasi has had enough medical and literary knowledge to compose this book.
