’Umar al-Tabari’s Three Books of Nativities

’Umar was a contemporary of Masha’allah’s, and his shorter introduction to nativities was drawn on extensively by Guido Bonatti. This new translation supersedes the earlier Project Hindsight edition, using the Book of Aristotle and Abu Bakr to reorganize the first two books into a seamless, coherent approach to rearing, profections and annual directions. Delineation material on topics has also been compared and occasionally numbered for easier comprehension. Learning level: beginner-intermediate. (77 pages)

Abu Bakr’s On Nativities

This is the first English translation of Abu Bakr’s (Albubater’s) famous and lengthy work from the 9th Century. Highlights include a treatment of transits during pregnancy, dozens of delineations for character and behavior, medical issues, and numerous professions. Learning level: intermediate. (226 pages)
