Islamic Astronomical Instruments by David A King

Islamic Astronomical Instruments by David A. King, published by Variorum Reprints (London), 1987.

Consists mainly of reprinted journal articles in their original typefaces, such as "The Medieval Yemeni Astrolabe in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York;" "Nasţūlūs the Astrolabist Once Again;" and "Le cadran solaire de la mosquée d'Ibn Ţūlūn au Caire".

By the way, the ţ's with commas under them are actually t's with dots under them in Arabic transcriptions. I can't find a way to encode a t with a dot under it in HTML.
