Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ... all moderns follow Saadias and Abulwalid in rendering it "brushwood" (as in Arabic).
