Thoroughly recommended for scholars of the Arabic language. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

About this title


This antiquarian book contains Edward William Lane’s famed dictionary; 'An Arabic-English Lexicon'. It is an Arabic–English dictionary, entirely collated by Edward William Lane, and published in eight volumes during the latter half of the nineteenth century. It contains a vast list of Arabic words with definitions and explanations in English. This volume will appeal to collectors of important antiquarian literature, and would make for a great addition to any bookshelf. Edward William Lane (1801 - 1876) was a British Orientalist, translator and lexicographer, best known for his translation of 'One Thousand and One Nights'. Many vintage texts such as this - particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before - are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
