The collected works of the Italian oriental scholar C. A. Nallino (1872-1938), who published his first treatise on Arab geography and astronomy at the age of 21. In 1938 he travelled in the Arabian Peninsula for two months, but died in Rome shortly after his return. The volume on Saudi Arabia, with which the series was inaugurated, was his last work. The second volume covers Islam ("dogmatica, súfisme, confraternite"), vol. 3 "Storia dell'Arabia preislamica. Storia e istituzioni musulmane"; vol. 4 "Diritto musulmano. Diritti orientali cristiani"; vol. 5 "Astrologia. Astronomia. Geografia". A final volume on literature, linguistics and philosophy was to be published in 1948.
