Among the earliest important Shiite works is that of Tusy’s List of Shiites Books. This reprint of the first publication of the work bears all the marks of a primary source, and it was a work heralded by Islamic scholars of late antiquity. Also included in this edition is the new edition of a supplement to Tusy’s bibliography prepared by Alam al-Hoda. The notes from this text are replicated at the bottom of the page. A useful resource for scholars of ancient bibliography, this uncommon source of Arabic scholarship is now again available, in its original language, for the Arabic reader interested in the history of bibliography.
