Descrizione

The followmg pages are the result of his labours. The introductory chapter is an account of the rise and growth of the Empire; the Caliph of real history follows, an Eastern autocrat, capricious, cruel, and vindictive, yet of a ban nature]. In the Caliph of legend, the Author shows how not only stories have gathered round his name more thickly than round that of the great Carl, or Frederick Redbeard, but also how the memory of the man is preserved in anecdotes which bear upon themselves the stamp of truth. It is therefore with great satisfaction that we present the readers of the New Plutarch with a restoration to life, so to Speak, of one who has too long been little better than a dweller in the realms of fiction. For the first time, the great Caliph of legend is done into English as a Caliph of history and reality.
