LOWENAU, WALTHER VON [EDITOR],
Briefe Ueber Den Fortgang
0. der asiatischen Studien in Paris, von einem der orientalischen Sprachen beflissenen jungen Deutschen. Ulm, n.d. [c.1828]; 40pp.; original blue sugar-paper wrappers. A detailed factual account of publications, scholarship, and scholars of the orient in Paris [to be followed, according to the editor, by a second series of letters from London]. Attention is paid to the tendency to follow the researches of a previousgeneration of scholars into customs, history and religions of the orient by concentrating purely on publishing classical Arabic and Persian poetry, and also on the planned expedition of Schulz to Persia. A rare and very ephemeral pamphlet, inscribed on the wrapper by the author or the editor to "Herrn Baron von Falunborg [?]".

AL-QAMUS
Arabic-Arabic Dictionary, By Al-Firuzabadi
. no date, (16th - 17th century) Philological dictionary in manuscript, in which the author lists a comparatively small number of root words, then proceeds their pronunciation and the meanings and Qur'anic references associated with them. This is the work of a scholar for scholars, and was not intended for general reference use. At least three different people have had a hand in inscribing the work, on various qualities of paper. The first fifty pages are of the best quality, displaying the finest calligraphy in the manuscript. The manuscript was possibly made in Egypt, and is almost certainly a copy of an earlier manuscript. The scribe's identity is unknown. Usually one can find the scribe's name on the verso of the title page, or at the end of the manuscript, whereas here the title page is mounted, which possibly conceals the name. The manuscript also finishes with a prayer for the scribe, the owner, and anyone who reads the book - not with the scribe's name. Small folio, full red embossed calf in frayed leather slip-case.

Texte arabe imprimé en 1811 par les soins de feu Langlès publié avec des corrections et additions et accompagné d'une traduction française et d'éclaircissements par M. Reinaud. Réimpression de l'édition de Paris 1845.

Even the reprint of this remarkable record or account of India and China made by Islamic travellers in the 9th century in Christian computation is apparently very scarce. The editor's introduction, translation, and notes are followed by the Arabic text. The light pencil annotations are mostly marginal translations of individual words into English, in a very small, neat hand.

ABÛ HILÂL AL-‘ASKARÎ.(TRAD. ET ÉD. PAR MATHIEU TILLIER)
Le Livre Des Califes Qui S’En Remirent Au Jugement D’Un Cadi .
. ( Cahiers des Annales islamologiques, 30 ) 2011, 103pp. glossy printed wrappers,
¶ This short adab treatise by Abu- Hila-l al-?Askari- (d. c. 400/1010) marks an important turning point in the relationship between political power and the judiciary in Islam. Written in the Bu-yid period as a concise mirror for princes, the work sanctions a doctrinal evolution that is the outcome of long-standing tension between the judiciary and the highest levels of the state. Using a series of pseudo-historical narratives, Abu- Hila-l suggests that rulers should be prepared to submit to the adjudication of ordinary men. By presenting caliphs as being under the judicial authority of qa-d.i--s, the author contributes to the de-sacralisation of the caliphate and to the promotion of an independent judiciary. Mathieu Tillier, researcher at the Institut français du Proche-Orient (Ifpo), presents a critical edition of the text with an introduction and a translation into French. righ bottom of front wrapper creased, o/w fine new copy.
