    • Description: 8vo. 42 (but: 40), 678 pp. With engraved frontispiece. Contemporary unsophisticated wrappers. Second edition of Boysen's German translation of the Qur'an, first published in 1773.

The translation was republished, with corrections, in 1828 by S. F. G. Wahl. - Paginat... Lisez plus
