The literary-historical religious work in Ottoman language by a 18th century Muslim scholar Abd al-Rahman Efendi Ashaf starts with the linguistic of the Greeks, Romans, Hebrews and pre-Islamic Indians, Persians, Syrians, Egyptians and Arabic Tribes and continues with the development of the Islamic poetry, exegesis of the Quran, the development of the Islamic law etc.
This is a charming example in a contemporary binding, made in the early period of the Bulaq Press.
The work is rare. It was printed in 508 examples as a privately contracted publication. We could not find any institutional examples on Worldcat.
