Über die Überreste der altbabylonischen Literatur in arabischen Uebersetzungen.
St. Petersburg, impr. de l'Academie des sciences, 1859.. Small folio. 196 pp. Contemp. half calf. Marbled endpapers.. First edition of this study of ancient Babylonian sources in Arabic translations. The Russian orientalist Daniel Abramovich Chwolson (1819-1911) was appointed extraordinary professor of Oriental languages in St Petersburg in 1855. In 1856 the Imperial Academy issued, at its own expense, Chwolson's first work, which established its author an an authority in the field of oriental research, the two-volume "Die Ssabier und der Ssabismus"; three years later Chwolson published the present "Über die Überreste der Altbabylonischen Literatur in arabischen Uebersetzungen" (also in Russian, in "The Russian Messenger", as "Novootkrytie Pamyatniki"). This work made a great sensation among scholars by the importance of its discoveries and by Chwolson's theories concerning the old Babylonian monuments.
