Abstract

81 before (cf. pp. 15, 227). The indifferent treatment meted out to the carabïya in the quotations is unpleasant, too; the reader frequently stumbles over repeated cases of mistaken vocalisation and violations of morphology: šahadtu, ta`radu instead of ta`ri,du, albisu; lam yadurrka, lam yastabiqqhii; lalaihf, ilaihz, canhii etc.; tu'allimu 1-?awdrz-; rawa ... musannafdtahi7,- tašaffiyan, muftïyan; siffa instead of sifa, mut`a instead of mutCa, . šiciib instead of šacciib and so on. Notwithstanding these critical remarks, I am inclined to follow Leder in many of his arguments. Moreover, the monograph contains a lot of shrewd observa- tions on topics other than questions of transmission, e. g., on the literary and ideological tendencies in al-Haitam's transmission activity. Leder's book is an important contribution to the study of Arabic prose literature.
