Extremely rare first French edition of Avicenna's Najat, a brief exposition of philosophical subjects that he was asked to write after publishing "The Cure" (al-Shifā'). The literal translation of "al-Najat" is "The Salvation". The French translator, Pierre Vattier, physician to the Duke of Orléans, became professor of Arabic at the Collège du Roi in the year of this publication, and translated several classical Arabic texts, mainly on historical and medical topics. The following year he published at Paris a Latin translation of some excerpts from "Canon" 3.1 having to do with mental disease. Culturally noticeable are Vattier's "Remarques" to his translation at the end of the volume.
