Memoire sur le Calendrier Arabe avant l'Islamisme
et sur la Naissance et l'Age du Prophète Mohammad; par Mahmoud Effendi, Astronome Égyptien.Brussels: Académie Royale de Belgique, 1858 Stock Code: 140075
First edition thus, first printing. Le Calendrier Arabe is an extract from the Memories Couronnes et Memoires des Savants Etrangers, Vol. XXX, and is on the pre-Islamic Arab calendar and the birth and age of the prophet Muhammad.
Quarto (225mm x 275mm). Modern quarter calf, titles to spine gilt, green faux leather boards, marbled brown endpapers.
Some wear to extremities and occasional soiling to boards, small loss to bottom corner of title page, a touch of foxing to contents. A very good copy indeed.
