Sammlungen alter arabischer Dichter (3-volume set)

This collection of the works of ancient Arabic poets encompasses the original three volumes of the collection by Ahlwardt from 1902 and 1903. The substantial introductions and comments are in German while the works referenced appear in the original Arabic. The three volumes contain material from al Asma Iyyat of al Asmai, al Ajjah, az Zafayan, and Ruba ben al Ajjaj, poets of the pre-Islamic period. This title, bound into one volume for affordability, is increasingly difficult to acquire. The selections of the poems themselves are essential reading for any historian of Arabic poetry while the comments of the editor add interpretive value to the original material from the hands of the poets themselves.
