Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Highly influential in Antiquity, Aristotle's study of the cosmos became even more widely known through medieval translations. This volume replaces the previous study and partial edition of 1978, to present a complete edition of the Arabic and Latin versions of Aristotle's , with a revised introduction and an Arabic- Latin-Greek index of relevant technical terms. Typical of this publisher are high standards of book making: fine book cloth, Smythe sewn binding, eye-friendly non-glare paper, and crisp print. Annotation c.
