Description

Books transport us in more ways than one. Following the clues it's left us, we know this small 75+ year old paperbound book has traveled the world...

This is a softcover edition of Louis Massignon's "Situation de L'Islam." The slender book consists of six essays and 15 picture plates. Massignon was a professor at the College de France.

***Text is IN FRENCH*****

Louis Massignon was a Catholic scholar of Islam and sought to build understanding between the Catholic and Muslim faiths in the first half of the 20th century.

The book was published by "Librairie Orientaliste Paul Geuthner," which was founded in 1901 and continues to publish books relating to the middle and far east.

To add to the book's history, there is a sticker from the original bookstore "Librairie Moliere" on 14, Rue Soliman Pacha, which I believe to have been in Cairo, Egypt. (on what is now named Talaat Harb St.)

CONDITION: Overall a nice copy of a soft-bound book, The book has paper covers which are intact but age-toned and worn along the spine. The glued binding between plates iv and v is weak (See photo 3). The publisher placed a sticker below the title which reads "Avec 15 Planches" (referring to the plates). There is mild soiling to the back cover. See photo 5.
