I’ve weakened and put out a tender in the NASCAS Christian Arabic group, for a translation from the Arabic of Bar Hebraeus’ words about the library of Alexandria. I’ve offered $30, which should be ample. Let’s get a translation made, and have done with it.
In case anyone is interested, a PDF of the pages from Pococke’s edition is here.
We need an accurate translation, made from the Arabic to academic standard. I’ll just give it away, of course, once it is done.
