A grammar of Biblical Aramaic by Franz Rosenthal( Book )

90 editions published between 1961 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 973 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

General introduction, and, From the Creation to the Flood by Tabari( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume I of the thirty-eight volume translation of Tabari's great History begins with the creation of the world and ends with the time of Noah and the Flood. It not only brings a vast amount of speculation about the early history of mankind into sharp Muslim focus, but it also synchronizes ancient Iranian ideas about the prehistory of mankind with those inspired by the Qur'an and the Bible. The volume is thus an excellent guide to the cosmological views of many of Tabari's contemporaries. The translator, Franz Rosenthal, one of the world's foremost scholars of Arabic, has also written an extensive introduction to the volume that presents all the facts known about Tabari's personal and professional life. Professor Rosenthal's meticulous and original scholarship has yielded a valuable bibliography and chronology of Tabari's writings, both those preserved in manuscript and those alluded to by other authors. The introduction and first volume of the translation of the History form a ground-breaking contribution to Islamic historiography in English and will prove to be an invaluable source of information for those who are interested in Middle Eastern history but are unable to read the basic works in Arabic
The Muqaddimah : An Introduction to History - Abridged Edition by Ibn Ibn Khaldûn( )

The Muqaddimah, often translated as "Introduction" or "Prolegomenon," is the most important Islamic history of the premodern world.

Science and medicine in Islam : a collection of essays by Franz Rosenthal( Book )

20 editions published between 1975 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The achievements of medieval Muslim scholars in the fields of philosophy, science and medicine are now well recognized, and Franz Rosenthal's work has been instrumental in helping us to understand these. In this third collection of his articles, he demonstrates the information to be gained from tracing the Greek roots of the science and medicine of the Islamic world in the Middle Ages. Of particular concern here are the Hellenistic or late Hellenistic authors such as Galen, Hippocrates or Ptolemy. These articles show how Muslim writers have preserved much that has been lost in the Greek and played a vital part in ensuring the continuity of the classical tradition, and examine some of the specific ways in which they reacted to and developed it
