About this Item: apud Johannem Luzac, Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden], 1737. First edition, 4to, pp. [38], 501, [38], [12] Index Locorum S. Scriptura, [72] Index Vocabulorum, [3] Corrigenda; title-page printed in red and black with engraved device, decorative engraved head- and tail-pieces and capitals; a very good and probably scarce large-paper copy, contemporary calf ruled in gilt, rebacked with original dec. gilt spine and red morocco label laid down, forecorners repaired with leather uniform with rebacking. This copy with the deco-style bookplate of Lionel Schalit (1907-1985, a leading figure in the Maccabi movement) mounted to front pastedown. Schultens (1686-1768), a professor of oriental languages at Leiden when he published this work, "was the chief Arabic teacher of his time, and in some sense a restorer of Arabic studies, but he differed from J. J. Reiske and A. I. De Sacy in mainly regarding Arabic as a handmaid to Hebrew. He vindicated the value of comparative study of the Semitic tongues against those who, like Gousset, regarded Hebrew as a sacred tongue with which comparative philology has nothing to do" (EB-11). Brunet V, 228; Graesse, VI, 319. Seller Inventory # 26887

Amthal Luqman al-Hakim was famous in Europe for his sagacity that united his three identities as the legendary hero of the lost ‘Ad tribe in Jahiliyya, the father who admonishes his son in a chapter of the Qur’an which bears his name, and the late medieval writer of the fables printed in this work.

About this Item: Wibii Bleck Bibliopolae, Franequerae, 1731. Small 4to. Condition: Good. First Edition. [10], 181 pp., Latin and Arabic text, marbled boards, professionally rebacked spine, occasional spotting, previous owner’s inscription verso front cover, small ink stamps on title page and front endpaper, small label on front fly leaf. First edition of more than one of the well-known Maqâmât or Sessions of al-Harîrî, published by the Leiden Arabist Albertus Schultens (1686-1740) during his post as the first Interpres Legati Warneriani. He was appointed to the post in Leiden, together with a teaching post as a lector of Oriental languages, in 1729, thereby ending his Professorship at the University of Franeker. It seems that Schultens's predecessor J. Heyman had already started work on this edition, but seemingly had not made any progress. In 1732 Schultens was appointed professor at the University of Leiden. The translation of the first Consessus is by Golius, as published in his edition of Erpenius's grammar of 1656. In 1740 Schultens published the second part (in all six Sessions, out of 50), together with a selection of texts on pre-Islamic Arabia (Monumenta vetustiora Arabiae). Bibliographic references: Schnurrer 230, 231 & 211 Zenker BOi, 766. (Monumenta); Lambrecht 1540. Size: Half-Calf. Seller Inventory # 011514
