Large 8vo, brown cloth, white lettering to spine. “This is a unique study of the spirit and radiance of the eight hundred years of Muslim dominance of Southern Spain, from the time of the invasion of the Iberian peninsula in 711 until the Renaissance. It examines the manner of life and the achievements in architecture, poetry, philosophy, religion, and music that developed in Andalusia, the center of the North African Arab empire on the European continent. The Arab contribution to human progress - astronomy, mathematics, cosmology, the variety and magnificent wealth of architecture form - could fully develop in Spain and is a remarkable legacy of a people who entered the land as conquerors, and became peaceful masters. From the establishment of the first misque in Córdova [sic] in 1785 until the time of their expulsion by the Catholic kings in 1492, the Moors dominated the intellectual life of the area and had a profoundimpact on European civilization which assimilated many of their ideas.

This book records for the first time the total magnificence of design and the skill of the craftsmen of that period.The studied elegance of these buildings still represents to many people th roughout the world the continuing presence of Islam in this, the Holy City of the Pprophet's Night Journey (Mi'raj) and the First Qibla, through fourteen centuries of Islamic history. This meticulous work, in which the architectural drawings have been prepared to precise standards, is the result of fifteen years of painstaking and definitive surveying by thehe British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, enhanced by detailed socio-historical research of the Mamluk period, with particular regard to the Old City.

BUTI, Gilbert (ed.). Corsaires et forbans en Méditerranée (XIVe - XXIe siecle). Textes réunis par Gilbert Buti pour la Société Francaise d''Histoire Maritime. (Paris) : Riveneuve éditions, (2009). Pp (6),7-312,(4). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated red card covers, lettered in black, red and white. "Evoquer la course et la piraterie conduit aussitôt notre imaginaire à voguer vers de lointaines et exotiques contrées, des Caraïbes à la mer de Chine, ennégligeant la Méditerranée familière qui a pourtant été aussi un des berce aux du brigandage maritime. Aussi vieilles que l'histoire et souvent confondues, course et piraterie connaissent une vitalité nouvelle en Méditerranéedès la fin du XVe siècle. Débordant sur le proche Atlantique et se prolong eant sous différentes formes jusqu'au XXIe siècle, ces pratiques demeurent un domaine sensible de l'histoire ainsi que le suggère pour les nommer l'emploi des termes course, guerre de course, piraterie, corso ou djihad maritime. La course, les corsaires et les forbans - ces hors-la-loi des mers - ont donné lieu à des recherches nombreuses et approfondies depuis le milieu du XXe siècle. A la suite des travaux pionniers de Michel Mollat du Jourdin,un des pères de l'histoire maritime en France, et notamment depuis la tenu e du XIIIe Colloque international de San Francisco (Course et piraterie, 1975), les études se sont multipliées autour de ces questions. Cependant, de nombreux champs restent à explorer et des pistes à défricher au-delà du cliquetis des sabres d'abordage. Tel a été un des objectifs de cette rencontrescientifique, tenue à Toulon sous le patronage de la Société française d'H istoire maritime présidée par l'Amiral Jacques Chatelle, sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité, moins encore à une synthèse. Des études de cas, autour d'événements et de personnages emblématiques, et une traversée de la Méditerranée sur la longue durée, permettent d'approcher une thématique qui reste complexe et ne peut se limiter à des réponses simples, sinon simplistes et définitives."
