A Perfect Gift For Historians! The Handwriting And Autograph Of Ibn Khaldun Reproduced From A 14th Century Manuscript Of The Muqaddimah


This one is for the historians out there! Ibn Khaldun was a 14th century eminent medieval historian, philosopher, and historiographer. His famous work, The Muqaddimah, written in 1377 covers various disciplines like sociology, philosophy, demography, historiography, cultural history, and economics. This t-shirt has a reproduction of Ibn Khaldun's own comments about the introduction of his great work of history written in his own handwriting and includes his own autograph (MS Atif Efendi 1936). The translation is as follows.

"This is the draft of the Muqaddimah of the Kitab al-'Ibar ft akhbar al­'Arab wa-l-'Ajam wa-l-Barbar. The contents are altogether scientific and form a kind of artistic preface to the historical work. I have collated and corrected it. No manuscript of the Muqaddimah is more correct than this one. Written by the author of the work, 'Abd-ar-Rahman Ibn Khaldun, God give him success and in His kindness forgive him."
