About the Author

Solomon ibn Gabirol (1021-1070) was an 11th century Andalusian poet who was born in Malaga and died in Valencia. He is credited as being a Jewish philosopher with, it is said, a 'Neo-Platonic' bent. He published over a hundred poems, as well as works on philosophy, ethics, and satire. In the 19th century it was discovered that medieval translators had Latinized Gabirol's name to Avicebron and had translated his work on Jewish Neo-Platonic philosophy into a Latin form.

Azafran Books was established with a clear aim in mind - to make available a selection of classic books for today's contemporary readers. The books in our catalogue have been selected from a broad range of themes; such as philosophy (occidental & oriental), mysticism & magic, new thought, religion & spirituality, folktales, mythology, cult fiction, poetry, social commentary, and psychology. Yet they all have a common theme, or purpose - to stimulate our thinking and modes of perception. For this reason, they have been chosen to be re-published and re-presented to the modern reader. Azafran Books have been re-edited, formatted, and presented with new design work - they are NOT scanned copies with original errors. Our books have been carefully re-published to the highest of standards - by a team of dedicated real people - not an algorithm! Our aim at Azafran Books is to bring a range of stimulating books, many of them largely forgotten, to the attention of the reader today. In other words, to bring you 'Classic Books for a Contemporary World.'
