[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.

[ARABIC]
[Collection of three works] DE PERCEVAL, ARMAND-PIERRE CAUSSIN: Grammaire arabe vulgaire, pour les dialectes d'Orient et de Barbarie. Paris, Dondey-Dupré, 1833.
. Pp. xvi, 172, (12) with Arabic text. Second edition (first 1824). De Perceval, at age twenty went to Constantinople as a translator. He visited Turkey and Lebanon before settling in Aleppo appointed as a dragoman. Upon his return to Paris he was appointed professor of Arabic at the College de France and later entering the Academy of Inscriptions in 1849. Gay 3389. Zenker, BO i, 254. Vater p. 28. BOUND WITH: BLED DE BRAINE, J.F.: Cours synthétique, analytique et pratique de langue arabe, arrangé a l'usage des colléges et des écoles, ou les dialectes vulgaires africains d'Alger, de Maroc, de Tunis et d'Égypte, ... Ouvrage divisé en 12 lecons ... Paris, Théophile Barrois, 1846. Pp. xxii, (2), 536. The author was director of the Arab schools in Algiers. Ibrahim Hilmy I, p.76. AND WITH: HÉLOT, LEON & HENRI: Fables de Lokman, surnommé le Sage, en arabe et en français, ... de notes et d'une traduction français au net par L. et H. Hélot. Paris, Théophile Barrois, 1847. (iv), iv, 102 , (2). Lambrecht 854, 879 & 1497. Bound together in contemporary boards, flat calf spine with title printed in gilt, somewhat rubbed. Bookplate. The French translation of the work is arranged by its juxtaposition against the corresponding Arabic words, meaning it creates a somewhat helpful and useful literal, linear arrangement of words against each word contained in the many famous fables, helping the reader recognize Arabic words, understand their meanings, enjoy the text of a fable, all at the same time, while gradually advancing in the study of the Arabic language. Luqman (also known as Luqman The Wise, Luqmaan, Lukman, and Luqman al-Hakeem Arabic: ) was a wise man for whom Surat Luqman (Arabic: ), the thirty-first sura (chapter) of the Qur'an, was named. Luqman (c. 1100 BC) is believed to be from Ethiopia in Africa.[1][2] There are many stories about Luqman in Arabic and Turkish literature and the primary historical sources are the Tafsir ibn Kathir and Stories of the Qur'an by Ibn Kathir.
