Lost Maps of the Caliphs: Drawing The World In Eleventh-Century Cairo

By Yossef Rapoport And Emilie Savage-Smith

2018 | University of Chicago Press
Copy Available: Yes

About a millennium ago, in Cairo, an unknown author completed a large and richly illustrated book. In the course of thirty-five chapters, this book guided the reader on a journey from the outermost cosmos and planets to Earth and its lands, islands, features, and inhabitants. This treatise, known as The Book of Curiosities, was unknown to modern scholars until a remarkable manuscript copy surfaced in 2000. Lost Maps of the Caliphs provides the first general overview of The Book of Curiosities and the unique insight it offers into medieval Islamic thought.
