The Al-Furqan Islamic Heritage Foundation of London published a new book authored by Mohammed Abattouy and Salim al-Hassani containing the critical edition of the Arabic texts composing the corpus of mechanics of Abu Hatim al-Muzaffar al-Isfizari, a Muslim scientist from the late 5th-early sixth century after the Hijra (corresponding to the late 12th-13th centuries CE).
