A Critical Edition (together with introduction and English translation) of the Pseudo-Avicenna Liber Celi et Mundi, a Latin translation from Arabic of a paraphrase of Aristotle's De Caelo. It was translated in Spain in the later twelfth century, almost certainly by Dominicus Gundissalinus and Johannes Hispanus.The text circulated widely in Western Europe in the later Middle Ages, in collections of the early Latin translations of the Aristotelian corpus and of the Arabic commentaries. The Origins of the Liber Celi et Mundi are unknown but the editor suggests that the author may have been the prolific Arabic translator, Hunayn Ibn Ishaq.This edition will be of particular interest to students of the Aristotelian tradition and the Arabic and Latin translators.Readership: Institutes and academic libraries with collections of classical arabic and Medieval philosophty, in particular of the Aristotelian tradition, and scholars interested in any of these fields.Oliver Gutman gained his Doctorate at Oxford University in 1996 and is the author of various articles on translation of the Aristotelian Corpus from Greek and Arabic.
