Compte-rendu réalisé par Benno van Dalen

Texte intégral

1This is an extended version of the Russian bio-bibliographical work on Islamic scholars published in 1983 by G. P. Matvievskaya and B. A. Rosenfeld, which in turn was footed in H. Suter’s “Die Mathematiker und Astronomen der Araber und ihre Werke” from 1900. The present work has been supplemented, in particular, with information from the volumes on “Ottoman mathematics, astronomy and geography” edited by the second author, and it now includes 1423 chronologically ordered entries for scholars and 288 undated ones. Besides, there is an overview of anonymous works in libraries of the world ordered by country. The remainder of the book includes a bibliography of 223 pages and indexes of author names and titles of works. Although this book is undoubtedly going to be a standard reference work, it is unfortunate that the authors have not corrected the numerous typos and other mistakes in the Russian predecessor, but have rather introduced new ones in updating the bibliography.
