Volume I: Translation: [1]. xv, 281 pp. 64 figures in text / Volume II: Commentary: [1]. xvii, 222 pp. +[3], numerous figures in text, biblio. index, translated & introduced by E. S. Kennedy, cover slightly soiled, otherwise set in good condition. These two companion volumes present, respectively, a translation of the arabic text and commentary upon a work of the celebrated scientist of eleventh century Central Asia. The original, as its name indicates, is an extensive discussion of shadows, their nature, properties, and utilities, the author ranging about through the fields of optics, etymology, literature, religion, mathematics, and astronomy, as the main topic leads him. It is as a primary source for the history of the ancient and medieval exact sciences that Biruni's Shadows is significant. The precursors of the tangent function he describes, particulary the primitive shadow tables for telling time, cintribute to our knowledge of the prehistory of trigonometry.
