The Muqaddimah; an introduction to history by Ibn Khaldūn ( Book )
81 editions published between 1958 and 2005 in English and held by 2,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Muqaddimah, often translated as "Introduction" or "Prolegomenon," is the most important Islamic history of the premodern world. Written by the great fourteenth-century Arab scholar Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406), this monumental work laid down the foundations of several fields of knowledge, including philosophy of history, sociology, ethnography, and economics. The first complete English translation, by the eminent Islamicist and interpreter of Arabic literature Franz Rosenthal, was published in three volumes in 1958 as part of the Bollingen Series and received immediate acclaim in America and abroad. A one-volume abridged version of Rosenthal's masterful translation was first published by Princeton University Press in 1969." "This new edition of the abridged version, with the addition of a key section of Rosenthal's own introduction to the three-volume edition, and with a new introduction by Bruce B. Lawrence, will reintroduce this seminal work to twenty-first-century students and scholars of Islam and of medieval and ancient history."--BOOK JACKET

The classical heritage in Islam by Franz Rosenthal ( Book )
38 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The influence of classical antiquity on the religious disciplines, theology, mysticism and law of Islam cannot be overestimated. This work demonstrates the significance of the classical heritage by drawing together a great range of literary renderings, paraphrases, commentaries and imitations, as well as independent Islamic elaborations. Professor Rosenthal's collection includes the work of early authors, authors of the Golden Age and later writers who imitated their works. The Classical Heritage in Islam reveals that the Muslim adoption of and dependence on classical texts was not bl
A grammar of Biblical Aramaic by Franz Rosenthal ( Book )
64 editions published between 1961 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The purpose of this grammar is twofold. It is, on one hand, to provide the beginner with the elements of the language, and, on the other, to prepare him ... for possible research in the problems of Aramaeology. These two aims may seem mutually contradictory, and it must be admitted that they are to a degree. However, the attempt is always worth making, and Biblical Aramaic, representing the comparative simplicity of the old consonant writing with the complexities of a much later stage of the spoken language superimposed upon it, is a strenuous training ground ... Knowledge of the syntax is important in any language, and in Aramaic where the syntax in particular reflects the history of the language most faithfully ..."--Preface
