About this Item: Charles Frank, 1965. hardcover. 1st edition. New York. 1965. . Charles Frank. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Worn and Scuffed Dustjacket. ISBN:. A rare book in this edition. 120 pages. hardcover. . . FROM THE PUBLISHER - It’s a wise child - or a wise adult, for that matter - who has read and assimilated what this quietly wise book has to say. Which doesn’t mean that this charming book lectures - nothing could be further from the truth. It tells human, winning, enchanting stories, and if they happen also to illustrate some of that fabled ‘wisdom of the East’ - well, so much the better. MAKTUB is intended for children but adults should also enjoy its style and humor. The stories that make up this volume vary widely in locale - from Marrakech to Peking - and theme - from the imperfections of earthly beauty and the limitations of earthly knowledge to the worthiness of the earthly virtues like charity, honesty and generosity. Their characters range from the three exceptional men of Baghdad, all of whom are ready to give up a beautiful young girl for the sake of their honor, to the beautiful young Moroccan woman who is claimed by two husbands and takes, instead of either, a third. The illustrations catch just the unique flavor of the East. MAKTUB is, in a word, delightful. Malba Tahan, full name Ali Yezzid Izz-Edin ibn-Salim Hanak Malba Tahan, was a fictitious Persian scholar. He was the creation and frequent pen name of Brazilian author Júlio César de Mello e Souza. According to the dedication and introductory chapters of The Man Who Counted (ostensibly written in the month of Ramadan in the year of the Hijrah 1921, corresponding to November 1903), Malba Tahan was a native and well-connected resident of Baghdad, a sharif (a descendant of Caliph Ali Ibn Abi Talib), and a hajj (a Muslim who made the pilgrimage to Mecca). In the year of the Hijrah 1255 1839, Malba Tahan moved to Constantinople with his lifelong friend Beremiz Samir, the namesake of Malba's book The Man Who Counted. In other works by Julio César, however, Malba Tahan was born on May 6, 1885 in the village of Muzalit, near Mecca (possibly modern Muzahmiyya). He lived for 12 years in Manchester, England, where his father was a prosperous merchant. After his father retired, the family moved to Cairo where they remained prosperous. Malba Tahan studied first in Cairo and afterwards went to Constantinople where he concluded his studies of social science. His first literary works date from this period and were published in Turkish in several newspapers and magazines. He was still a young man when his friend emir Abd el-Azziz ben Ibrahim appointed him mayor of Medina, a post which he filled with distinction for several years. In 1912, at the age of 27, he received a large inheritance from his father, which allowed him to travel widely around the world, including China, Japan, Russia, India, and Europe. He died in July 1931 near Riyadh, Arabia, fighting for the freedom of a local tribe. Malba Tahan is said to mean ‘the miller from the oasis’ in Arabic. But Tahan was in fact the surname of one of Julio Sousa's students, Maria Zechsuk Tahan. inventory #3217 Very Good In Worn and Scuffed Dustjacket. Seller Inventory # z3217
