This is a multi-volume collection by leading authors in Islamic Studies. The volumes were originally published between 1867 and 1987. The collection reprints texts carefully selected on the basis of their influence and prestige, written by pre-eminent scholars of Islamic history, philosophy and religion.
The majority of the volumes reprint the original, first editions, but where appropriate, updated, enlarged editions are sometimes selected.
