Islamic Calendar: Year 1399 From the Death of the Prophet 1989-1990 G.

Islamic Calendar: Year 1399 From the Death of the Prophet 1989-1990 G.

World Islamic Call Society, 1989. Scarce and interesting item from this Islamic organization. The World Islamic Call Society was established in 1972. It was led and funded by leading elements of the Gaddafi regime and comprised 250 Islamic organizations governed by a General Congress. It is believed that the society played a double-game by promoting Libyan interests as well as acting as a religious charity. One of its main focuses was to promote a version of Islam opposed to interfaith co-existence and seeking the establishment of a single - Islamic - religion. At the end of the Libyan civil war it was announced that some elements of the society would be purged, but that it would still serve as a religious charity. The calendar text is in both Arabic and English. It begins with a mission statement and an overview of its organizational structure. The rest of the volume is a conventional calendar with two days per page. Most interesting are the 32 color photographs, of which 16 are of Muammar Gaddafi, "the muslim leader." The other photos are of mosques, meetings, and one showing "traces of an American raid on Tripoli." Bound in dark green cloth with title in silver, in English on front cover and Arablic on the rear. Nothing written in. In near fine condition. Unpaginated. Near Fine.

ALs to John Stevens Henslow

ALs to John Stevens Henslow

[1831]. A three page handwritten letter dated September 29, 1831 from Edward B. Blackburn (1786-1839) to John Stevens Henslow (1796-1861) accompanying the shipment to Henslow of botanical specimans from Mauritius. Blackburn was the Chief Justice of Mauritius and the First President of the Court of Appeal. He was also an amateur botanist, specimens he collected are still retained by the library at Kew Gardens. Henslow was a noted English botanist and geologist who is today best known as the friend and mentor of his student Charles Darwin. Blackburn writes that he is taking the liberty of sending the specimens because of Henslow's "zeal for the science of Botany." He apologizes for the condition and limited study he made of the specimens, saying that his other occupations did not allow him the time he would have liked to spend on them. He closes with saying that he will send additional plants if they are worthy of the collection at his alma mater, Cambridge. A few light smudges and what appears to be glue remnants on the edge of the blank fourth page. Very good condition. 7.25 x 9.25 inches. AUTO/082713. Very Good.
