[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.

Originally published in Vienna 1683.A scarce news pamphlet which tells the story of Kulczycki (1640-94), a Polish Lithuanian nobleman who was considered a hero for his actions during the Battle of Vienna in 1683. He volunteered as courier of Prince Starhemberg, the commanadant of Vienna, to make contact with the forces of Duke Charles of Lorraine. Disguised as a Turkish soldier Kulczycki left Vienna and managed to cross the enemy lines to meet the Duke, and then return to Vienna with a promise of imminent relief. Because of his message the defenders held out until the allied armies relieved the city on September 12 1683. The text follows with information about Kulczycki's dealings with coffee. According to a legend Kulczycki, as a reward, was allowed to keep large quantities of coffee beans left behind by the beaten Turks as personal booty. He was the founder of the first coffee house in Vienna called "Hof zur Blauen Flasche". Hünersdorff, Coffee Bibl., pp 815-6 (a copy with slightly different engraved portrait; also forming the title).
