First edition of this Arabic-Latin dictionary, prepared to accompany the author's Arabic chrestomathy. While both works were published simultaneously, they were sold separately and hence are not usually encountered together.

The Czech theologian and orientalist Jahn (1750-1816) taught at Olomouc and Vienna, where he also served as Canon of St. Stephan's Cathedral.

Somewhat browned throughout, as common. Old Linz library stamp to title page (cancelled); ink ownership of Wenzel Hajduk (dated 1826) on flyleaf.
