Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the eighteenth century, the academic scholar Ibn al-Tayyib made a rihla (journey) from Morocco to the Hijaz in modern day Saudi Arabia, documenting his travels in the translated manuscript Rihla ila al-Hijaz. Lahlali, Al-Dihan and Abu Hatab here introduce the manuscript, providing a complete translation of the text and a commentary on this remarkable journey and the socio-political climate of the time in which it took place. Al-Tayyibs manuscript is considered the most important reference to the author's life and culture and provides a fascinating and important insight into North Africa and the Middle East in the eighteenth century.
