About this Item

Thick 8vo. [iv], 844 pp. 14 pages of illus. Cloth, dust-jacket; hinges repaired. Very good. Very scarce. "Over seventy scholarly papers were presented at the Congress . . ." Al-Biruni "is probably the most prominent of the Muslim scientists who characterize the Golden Age of Islamic Science. A versatile genius, he was equally at home in history, geography, medicine, pharmacy, physics, astronomy, mineralogy and mathematics, and has written over one hundred and eighty works of high scientific value in all these branches of study. His calculation of the circumference of the earth, trisection of the angle, accurate determination of latitudes and longitudes, discovery that light travels faster than sound, determination of the specific gravity of 18 precious stones and metals, prove that his scientific attainments and contributions to the sum total of knowledge are substantial.".
