An Anony­mous Greek Novel in Letters in Arabic Trans­la­tion
Arabic text pp. 149, commen­tary in English pp. 112

A hitherto unknown Arabic novel in letters contai­ning the corres­pon­dence ascribed to Aris­totle and Alex­ander the Great. The Arabic text, which is quite probably the first Arabic text written in prose, was trans­lated from Greek into Arabic under the reign of the Umayyad Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik. Parts of the novel are well known as inde­pen­dent trea­tises (Pseudo-Aris­totle’s De mundo and Sirr al-asrar, etc.), but the novel as such, in the form of a novel in letters serving as a hand­book of epis­to­lo­graphy and as a hand­book of political and moral philo­sophy, has not been known until the edition of this manu­script.
