About this Item: Tarih Vakfi Yurt Yayinlari, Istanbul, 2007. Soft cover. Condition: New. Kesfu'z Zunun an Esami'l-Kutubi ve'l - Funun [Kitaplarin ve Ilimlerin Isimlerinden Suphelerin Giderilmesi] I - II - III - IV - V [5 volumes set]., Katip Celebi, translator: Rustu Balci, Tarih vakfi yurt yayinlari, Ist., 2007. Paperback. Mint. 4to. (27.5 x 20 cm). In total 2160 p. "Kashf az-zunun an asami l-kutub wa l-funun: Katib Celebi¿s bibliographical dictionary, written in Arabic. It represents a unique achievement in that, after a general introduction which to a large extent depends on Ibn Khaldun¿s Muqaddima, it consists of one continuous alphabetic sequence of ca. 14.500 book titles and 300 names of sciences. With the latter Katib Celebi is taking Ta¿köprüzade¿s (d. 968/1561) Miftah al-saada as his model. In every entry for a book Katib Celebi noted, wherever possible, the title, the language, the name of the author and the date of composition, the incipit, the division into chapters (the presence of which can be taken as an indication that he had actually seen the book), as well as translations and commentaries (as cross references). Entries on sciences were also intended to include a list of relevant book titles as cross references, but these are often missing. In certain instances entries also include criticism of the book or the author. The scope of the work covers Arabic, Persian, and Turkish literature, with a few references to Greek texts. While the book is still appreciated as a reference, its potential as a source for 11th/17th century intellectual history, in particular in the definition of a literary and scholarly canon, has not yet been explored. The way in which Katip Celebi managed to arrange this mass of material is still not entirely clear. Birnbaum has argued that he must have used a system of index cards as the basis of the work. Preserved is an autograph of a partial fine copy, ending with article ¿¿durus¿. According to a note in Mizanü¿l-haqq, the fine copy had reached the letter ha in 1063/1652. For the rest, the author¿s draft with numerous marginal additions and annotations has been preserved. Whereas early editions and an edition-cum-translation are based on individual manuscripts, the autograph has been used as the basis of the edition by Bilge and Yaltkaya. In addition to a short continuation by Hanifzade Ahmed Tahir (d. 1217/1802), entitled Hadis-i nev, a larger one was authored by Bagdadli Ismail Pascha (d. 1339/1920), together with an index of authors.".

About this Item: IRCICA, Istanbul, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. Original bdg. Large roy. 8vo. (25 x 17 cm). In English and Arabic. 6 volumes set. The present book is a critical edition of the major biographical work Sullam al-Wusul by Katib Chalabi (d. 1657), one of the most important Ottoman scholars of the 17th century. His most well-known works are Kashf al-Zunun (bibliographical), Sullam al-Wusul (biographical), Fezleke (general Islamic history) and Cihannuma (geographical). The first cited, an outstanding bibliography in history of science, and the last cited, were published many times. Sullam al-Wusul was not published until today (Fezleke either). The book is arranged in two editions of 6 volumes each. The main body is in Arabic in both editions, whereby the comprehensive Introduction by Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu and the Preface by Dr. Halit Eren are provided in also English in one of the editions and also in Turkish in the other edition. The sixth volume altogether is the Index. Work towards this publication was conducted at the initiative and under the editorship and coordination of Prof. Ihsanoglu on the occasion of the 2009 Katib Chalabi Year proclaimed by UNESCO. It was conceived in the context of IRCICA's objective to publish major sources of culture and learning that are part of the Muslim world's heritage and render them available to researchers. In the comprehensive Introduction, Ihsanoglu explores some features of Islamic literature in the area of biography as observed over the centuries. Historians of the Muslim world wrote hundreds of books in every branch of biography: 'While some of these contained the biographies of scholars belonging to specific branches of science or to certain sects, others dealt with the life stories of statesmen, scholars and religious authorities who lived in specific places or specific periods of time. These kinds of biographies were usually arranged by category and by date. Another type of biographies contained information on important statesmen, scholars, religious figures, authors, artists, etc. having lived in history. This type of general biography was usually arranged alphabetically. Katib Chalabi is the leading, or one of the leading personality among those who produced general biographies.' This biography records the lives and works of important statesmen and scholars in Islamic history and also of renowned personalities from pre-Islamic times who held a place in learning and literature. In the second part of the book Katib Chalabi gives information about the personalities' names derived from their places of origin or their genealogy. In the prologue, he explains the method he followed in the book, comments on the science of history, and adds information on names derived from places or genealogy. In this regard Sullam al-Wusul is also a book on genealogy. The Index section has been added to the edition. It is composed of four parts: personal names, place names, publication titles, names of institutions. A very heavy set.
