A traveller in thirteenth-century Arabia : Ibn al-Mujāwir's Tārīkh al-mustabṣir by Yūsuf ibn Yaʻqūb Ibn al-Mujāwir( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English translation of the Tarikh al-Mustabsir, written in the early quarter of the thirteenth century by Ibn al-Mujawir. The text is a fascinating account of the western and southern areas of the Arabian peninsula by a man from the east of the Islamic world, probably from Khurasan in Iran." "Ibn al-Mujawir was a man who in all probability followed the age-old Islamic practice of making the pilgrimage to Mecca and thereafter travelling in the area to further his business interests. His route began in Mecca and essentially ran south through the Red Sea coastal plain, Tihamah, down into the Yemen and along the southern coast of the peninsula. He paused long in Aden, where he observed closely the activities of the port to report at some length on its administration, its taxes, its markets, its currency, its weights and measures, and the like. His route then continued along the southern coast of Arabia and into the Gulf, and he presumably returned home to the east via Iraq. The author is a wonderful observer of people: their buildings, their dress, their customs, their agriculture, their food and their history." "This book is a unique source for the social and economic history of thirteenth-century south Arabia, written with a humour and wit otherwise unknown in the writings of medieval Islam. The text is of major linguistic importance, too, written as it is in a far from classical Arabic. This translation is fully annotated with an introduction, appendices, glossary and full index, and contains maps and illustrations."--Jacket

20 editions published between 1958 and 2010 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abdalla Ibn Battuta (1304-1354) has been celebrated as one of the greatest travelers of pre-modern times. Of all medieval travel writers, including Marco Polo, only Ibn Battuta penetrated deep into black Africa and provided unique documentation as well as a highly personal report of private lives and morals, religion and scholarship, and trade and government in East and West Africa. Here we read about the warm hospitality of the people of Mogadishu, the generosity of the sultan of Kilwa, disapproving descriptions of personal freedoms women enjoyed in the blossoming West African kingdom of Mali, and hostility toward the white man. Ibn Battuta traveled to Black Africa twice: in 1331 to the East Coast and in 1351-1352 from Morocco down the Sahara to the Niger. He reported about the wealthy, multicultural trading centers at the African East Coast, especially Mombasa and Kilwa. Ibn Battuta visited the legendary kingdom of Mali and its neighboring states during the area's period of prosperity from mining and trans-Saharan trade
