Most widely held works by Charles Burnett
Studies in the history of the exact sciences in honour of David Pingree ( file )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,027 libraries worldwide
This collection of essays reflects the wide range of David Pingree's expertise in the scientific texts (above all, concerning astronomy and astrology) of Ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, India, Persia, and the medieval Arabic, Hebrew and Latin traditions. Both theoretical aspects and the practical applications of the exact sciences-in time keeping, prediction of the future, and the operation of magic-are dealt with. The book includes several critical editions and translations of hitherto unknown or understudied texts, and a particular emphasis is on the diffusion of scientific learning from one culture to another, and through time. Above all, the essays show the variety and sophistication of the exact sciences in non-Western societies in pre-modern times

The abbreviation of The introduction to astrology : together with the medieval Latin translation of Adelard of Bath by Abū Maʻshar( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and Arabic and held by 175 libraries worldwide
Abu Ma'sar (787-886, known as Albumasar in Western Europe) was the best known astrologer of the Middle Ages in both the Islamic world and the Christian West. His most famous work was the "Great Introduction" to astrology, which was copied into numerous Arabic manuscripts, translated into Latin twice, and printed in the Renaissance. However, he himself made an abbreviation of this work, which summarized the astrological information in the larger work. This abbreviation survives in two Arabic manuscripts and a Latin translation made by Adelard of Bath in the early 12th century. This text contains the first edition of the abbreviation and the Latin translation, with English translations of both texts and several indexes. It should be of interest to cultural historians, as well as a useful introduction to medieval astrology

Arabic into Latin in the Middle Ages : the translators and their intellectual and social context by Charles Burnett( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 148 libraries worldwide
This collection of Charles Burnett's articles on the transmission of Arabic learning to Europe concentrates on the identity of the Latin translators and the context in which they were working. The articles are arranged in roughly chronological order, beginning with the earliest known translations from Arabic at the end of the 10th century, progressing through 11th-century translations made in Southern Italy, translators working in Sicily and the Principality of Antioch at the beginning of the 12th century, the first of the 12th-century Iberian translators, the beginnings and development of 'professional' translation activity in Toledo, and the transfer of this activity from Toledo to Frederick II's entourage in the 13th century. Most of the articles include editions of texts that either illustrate the style and character of the translator or provide the source material for his biobibliography

Islam and Tibet : interactions along the musk routes ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 119 libraries worldwide
"The first encounters between the Islamic world and Tibet took place in the course of the expansion of the Abbasid Empire in the eighth century. Military and political contacts went along with an increasing interest in the other side. Cultural exchanges and the transmission of knowledge were facilitated by a trading network, with musk constituting one of the main trading goods from the Himalayas, largely through India. From the thirteenth century onwards, the spread of the Mongol Empire from the Western borders of Europe through Central Asia to China facilitated further exchanges. The significance of these interactions has been long ignored in scholarship. This volume represents a major contribution to the subject, bringing together new studies by an interdisciplinary group of international scholars. They explore for the first time the multi-layered contacts between the Islamic world, Central Asia and the Himalayas from the eighth century until the present day in a variety of fields, including geography, cartography, art history, medicine, history of science and education, literature, hagiography, archaeology, and anthropology."
