Ahmad Amin (1886-1954) was one of that remarkable cohort of Egyptian intellectuals all born a few years either side of 1890, a group whose prolific literary output largely defined and expressed the dominant liberal trend in Egyptian intellectual and cultural life in the period of the parliamentary monarchy from the 1920s through the 1940s. The autobiographical statements of two members of this group, Salamah Musa and Taha Husayn, have previously been made available in English translations. Now the reader unfamiliar with Arabic has an English version of Amin's autobiography to complement those of Musa and Husayn and to illuminate the cultural trends of a most important period of modern Egyptian and Arab history. -- from http://www.jstor.org (Dec. 10, 2013)

The unique necklace = Al-ʻIqd al-farīd by Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad Ibn ʻAbd Rabbih( Book )

13 editions published between 1940 and 2001 in Arabic and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al-Iqd al-Farid (The Unique Necklace), translated now for the first time into English, is one of the classics of Arabic literature. Compiled in several volumes by an Andalusian scholar and poet named Ibn `Abd Rabbih (246-328 H./860-940 C.E.), it remains a mine of information about various elements of Arab culture and letters during the four centuries before his death. Essentially it is a book of adab, a term understood in modern times to specifically mean literature but in earlier times its meaning included all that a well-informed person had to know in order to pass in society as a cultured and refined individual. This meaning later evolved and included belles letters in the form of elegant prose and verse that was as much entertaining as it was morally educational such as poetry, pleasant anecdotes, proverbs, historical accounts, general knowledge, wise maxims, and even practical philosophy. Ibn `Abd Rabbih's imagination and organization saved his encyclopedic compendium from easily being a chaotic jumble of materials by conceiving of it as a necklace composed of twenty-five 'books', each of which carried the name of a jewel. Each of the twenty-five 'books' was organized around a major theme and had an introduction written by Ibn `Abd Rabbih, followed by his relevant adab selections of verse and prose on the theme of the 'book'. He drew on a vast repertoire of sources including the Bible, the Qur'an, and the "Hadith", and the works of al-Jahiz, Ibn Qutayba, al-Mubarrad, Abu `Ubayda ibn al-Muthanna and several others, and the diwans of many Arab poets, including his own poetry which is why "The Unique Necklace" is a standard text for those interested in classical Arabic literature."--Jacket
