An erudite and popular librarian, Charles Edward Sayle (1864-1924) devoted his career to cataloguing and editing rare books in the University of Cambridge. His obituary praised him as 'a fine example of the type of man who likes to catalogue things in the right order'. This catalogue of incunabula and early printed books in the University Library was his most important project, taking over a decade to complete. Commissioned by the Library Syndicate in 1894, the catalogue was published in four volumes between 1900 and 1907. Even upon completion, Sayle's list was not final, as the rare book collections at the Library were undergoing a period of great expansion, having grown by a third during his cataloguing work, both through purchases and by donations or bequests. The first volume covers all books from 1475-1500, and books produced from 1501 to 1640 by the most important printers in London

The rose-garden of Shekh Muṣliḥuʼd-dīn Sādī of Shīrāz by Saʻdī( Book )

10 editions published in 1890 in English and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Rose Garden' is a kaleidoscope of differing views and ideas, from the most noble to the most trivial, in what Peter Brent called 'a rich mixture of aphorisms, proverbs, love lyrics, erotic stories, descriptions of great rulers and pronouncements in prose and verse on morality and ethics.' Beyond the surface playfulness of his work there is a deep consistency to Saadi's poetry which reveals its sufic dimension. Saadi lived in a time of violence and barbarity much like our own: witnessing the dismemberment of Persia by the Mongols with its attendent massacres, he saw the end of the cultural supremecy of his beloved Baghdad. The charm, fun and games, and ultimate serenity in his work was thus hard-won, and aspects of life like cruelty and racism are not eluded: they are seen as part of the vast tapestry God has woven for mankind to study and learn from. It is in fact the complexity of Saadi's world view that makes this book into a primer for self-development and an instrument for altering one's own consciousness"--P. [4] of cover
