Two works on Arabic grammar bound together, the first being annotated by its author, Italian Arabist, Michele Angelo Lanci. Quarter green sheep over marbled boards, soundly bound, rubbed to edges. Lanci's work comes first (viii, pp 184 [2 plates] pp30-1; Arabic section paginated in reverse). The authorial annotations appear at two places, first page 3 where 'testavano' is changed to 'attestavano' but more extensively at the foot and marginally in pages 74-75 in which the author annotates in order to add to the text with a citation to a Roman martyrology, beginning in Italian and then switching to the Latin of the text he wishes to quote and signing his name below the addition to the text 'Michelangelo Lanci'. The Flores Grammaticales Arabici Idiomatis, Rome 1845 forms the second part of the text, collating, pp 154 [3 foldout plates] pp 155-410. Lanci was an Italian orientalist who became Professor of Arabic at the University of Rome and eventually died in Palestine in 1867. Given the conjunction of these two texts it is perfectly possible that these were Lanci's own copies though he leaves no indication of this if it is so.
