The first scholarly printed Quran. Marracci's translation incorporates a much more accurate Arabic text than any previously printed edition. It is also the first accurate Latin translation, including extensive notes based on the Islamic commentaries, as well as the editor's extensive refutations of each sutra. Each sura is given first in Arabic, then in Latin translation, followed by notes and then the refutation. The first volume also includes one of the first detailed biographies of Muhammad. Islamic scholars usually dismissed this important edition because of its attempt to refute the views of Islam. Marracci's edition remained the best source of the Arabic Quran text for European scholars until Gustav Flügel's edition of 1834. - Binding somewhat rubbed and skillfully restored at edges.
