Item Description: Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1806, 1806. Quarto (249 x 184 mm). Early-20th-century pebble-grain purple cloth, fore edge untrimmed. From the collection of British Arabist Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with bookplate noting his wife's bequest of his books to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind stamps as usual. With the corrigenda slip tipped to p. 33. Sunned overall (unevenly on the boards), contents browned, damp-stain to frontispiece, title page, gradually receding over the first 50 or so pages, contemporary inked correction to p. 449. A very good copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece, vignette to title page. Second edition of a work which represented "a revolution in Arabic studies" (ODNB) on first publication in 1650. Pococke (1604-1691) was the first Laudian professor of Arabic at Oxford. In 1631 he travelled to Aleppo as chaplain to the Levant Company, and returned to England five years later with a large collection of Arabic manuscripts which included the "Mukhtasar fi'l-duwal", an account of Islamic history written by a 13th-century Syrian bishop Bar Hebraeus (known in Arabic as Abu'l-Faraj) and far superior to anything other sources then available in Europe. He published a small excerpt in Arabic and Latin, with, most importantly, "a lengthy commentary illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (ibid.) This edition includes as an appendix the section on the Arabs before Islam from the Mukhtasar ta'rikh al-bashar ("Abridged History of Mankind") of Syrian prince Abu'l-Fida' (1273–1331), which is here printed with the Latin translation and notes of the pre-eminent 19th-century French orientalist Sylvestre de Sacy. The editor, Joseph White (1746-1814) was electedunanimously to the Laudian chair in 1774, and was also a highly accomplished Hebrew scholar.

Item Description: E. Typographeo Clarendoniano, Oxford, 1806. Hard Back. Book Condition: Good. Second Edition. xv, 573 pp. Latin & Arabic text within borders, steel engraved frontispiece portrait, vignette on title page, 1 steel engraved plate, partly uncut, rebacked, new vellum spine, slightly rubbed boards, scattered foxing mainly on front and last few pages, book plate of Peter Fraser. Copy in good condition. Edward Pococke (1604-1691), whose notes enriched this work, did perhaps more than any other man of his day to promote Oriental scholarship in England, travelling and collecting rare manuscripts ( It has been said that of all the numerous collectors of MSS. who have acquired books for the Bodleian. Pococke alone escaped being deceived and cheated in his purchases)., becoming Master of Arabic and first professor of the Arabic lecture at Oxford, and publishing valuable scholarly works like the present one. The Specimen Historiae is an excerpt from the Mukhtasar-fi-d-duwal (Universal History) of Grigher ( 897-967), Arab scholar who rose to prominent position in the Jacobite church at Aleppo and in Azerbaijan, and is the most valuable authority available for the Arabs in their pre-islamic and early Moslem days. Pococke uses the Arabic work as a centrepiece for an elaborate series of essays on Arabic history, literature, religion, and science. The essays are clearly based upon Pococke’s life - long researches on this and hundreds of other Arabic manuscripts, and his sound scholarship and remarkable erudition in the area of Oriental studies. It has been asserted that the Specimen and the Baingrigii Canicularia (1648) by John Greaves were the first two works printed in Arabic types at Oxford. The 1648 imprint on this work’s second title is undoubtedly the date when the whole work was first set up. ( D. N. B. Encyclopaedia Britanica). The extract from Abu ‘l-Faraj is the first Arabic text ever printed at Oxford, though the type had already been used by Henry Hall to print John Greave’s edition of Ulugh Beg’s Persian astronomical work at Oxford in 1648.

Specimen historiae arabum; . Accessit historia veterum: POCOCKE, Edward.

Item Description: Schnurrer 169; for Pococke: Toomer, "Pococke, Edward (1604-1691)", in: ODNB (online ed). Second edition of Pococke's elaborate Specimen historiae Arabum, an excerpt from Abu'l-Faraj's Islamic history, in Arabic and Latin. The excerpt is "accompanied by a lengthy commentary (printed first in 1648) illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe. It represents a revolution in Arabic studies, being Pococke's attempt to show that far from being a mere ancillary to biblical exegesis, Arabic literature (in the widest sense) was worthy of study in its own right in the same way that classical cultures were. It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (Toomer). Abu'l-Faraj's account is followed by unpublished fragments, in Arabic, of Abu'l-Fida's account of pre-Islamic Arabia, edited by Sylvestre de Sacy.From the library of the Ducs de Luynes, with their bookplate on pastedown. Foxed, leaf Y4 with tear, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Bookseller Inventory # FBJDK7M9SETA
