Three parts in one volume; each part with its own title; some text in Arabic, Hebrew and Greek. Contains the lives of the contemporary orientalists Robert Huntington (1637–1701) and Edward Bernard (1638–96), with the letters of the former and the unfinished work on ancient and Arabian mathematicians by the latter. Huntington spent the years 1671–81 as chaplain to the Levant Company at Aleppo, travelling widely in the Middle East and collecting manuscripts, keeping up a correspondence with Narcissus Marsh, Edward Pococke and Bernard. The letters in the present volume were mostly written to correspondents in the Levant after his return to England. In 1668 Bernard studied the Oriental books and manuscripts held at Leiden university library and obtained permission copy them. His proposed publication of a Latin translation was left to Edmund Halley to complete in 1710 at which time there was an eagerness among scholarship to revisit ancient mathematical writers. An index of available works were compiled into the volume “Veterum mathematicorum Graecorum, Latinorum, et Arabum synopsis” but it was by no means complete.
