English translation of Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazzali's Nasihat al-Muluk
Scope and Contents
Translated by James Walker. The translation is dated at Rotterdam, 22 May 1702, but this MS consists of sheets watermarked 1808 and 1810. The translator's English is imperfect: he admits in his preface to being 'not as yet accustomed to the expressing properly of the English terms'. The text continues without a break from vols 1 to 2 and is paginated continuously 1-953, although there are numerous errors in the pagination. The English text is on the verso throughout. The recto was apparently intended to contain the original text in Arabic and 'Malajouish' [Malay?], in parallel columns, but that plan is abandoned after section 3.
