A History of Egypt: The Middle Ages

By Stanley Lane-Poole, M.A., Litt.D.

PREFACE

”In this volume the History of Egypt in the Middle Ages, from its conquest by the Saracens in 640 to its annexation by the Ottoman Turks in 1517, is for the first time related in a continuous narrative apart from the general history of the Mohammadan caliphate.  In compressing the events of nearly nine centuries into a single volume, many interesting subjects are of necessity treated dry briefly, but the list of authorities at the head of each chapter will enable the student to obtain fuller details, especially if he is acquainted with Arabic.

Besides the works thus cited, I am particularly indebted to M. Max van Beecher, not only for permission to reproduce his photographs of inscriptions, but for his invaluable assistance in preparing the lists of inscriptions which precede each chapter, for which he kindly sent me the proof-sheets of the forthcoming volume of his Matériaux pour Un Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum, and also notes of the Mamluk inscriptions he had collected in Syria.  I have also to thank my colleagues Professor R.H. Charles and Professor J.B. Bury for their help in reference to the Ethiopic and Byzantine sources for the history of the Arab conquest; and M.P. Casanova and M. Here Bey for the use of some of the illustrations.

S. L.-P.
