About the Author

Edgard Blochet (1870-1937) worked at the manuscript department of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France from 1895 until 1935, during which time he produced a valuable series of catalogues, most notably his Catalogue des manuscrits persans de la Bibliothèque Nationale. In the field of mediaeval history, he edited the Arabic chronicle of the Mamluk historian, Mufaḍḍal b. Abi’l-Faḍā’il (c. 759/1358). Blochet also edited a portion of the Jāmi‘ al-tawārīkh, covering from the accession of Ögedei Qa’an to part of the reign of Temür Qa’an (1227–1303), published in the E.JW. Gibb Memorial Series as volume XVIII/2 (1911).
