[WALLIN, GEORG AUGUST (ED.) / IBN MALIK / BADR AL-DIN IBN MALIK]:
Badr al-Din Muhammad & Jamal al-Din Muhammad Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Malik Sharh Badr al-Din 'ala qasida walidihi al-'ulama Ibn Malik al-mashura bi-lamiyat al-af'al. Helinski, F. Liewendal, 1851.
. 12mo. Pp. (1), 41. With lithographed naskh script, 17 lines on each page within a black border. Stab-sewn as issued. A rare edition of the Lamiyat al-Af'al' by the renowned Arab grammarian Ibn Malik together with a commentary by his son Badr al-Din. Edited by Georg Wallin, acclaimed Finnish orientalist and Arabian scholar. Lamiyat al-Af'al' is a metrical work of ilm al-sarf (the science of morphology) in Arabic grammar. Ibn Malik (Abu 'Abd Allah Jamal al-Din Muhammad) (1204-74) was born in Andalusia and moved East to study in Aleppo. He finally settled in Damascus where he taught language, literature, Koranic recitation etc. He is mainly known for his versification of textbooks, the most famous being a poem titled al-Alfiya. Ibn Malik's grammatical works were core texts in a traditional Islamic curriculum, particularly in Egypt, where Wallin spent eighteen months living as a Muslim in 1844-5. This text was presumably lithographed because of lack of Arabic types in Helsinki. We have only found one listed library copy, at British Library. See Encyclopedia of Arabic literature, p. 347. Zenker BO II, 121.
