Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815) writings on the ill-fated Danish scientific expedition to Arabia, during which all but one of the participants died. Johann Michaelis (1717-91), the most celebrated Orientalist of his day and passionate proponent of the study of Hebrew antiquities. It was to him that Niebuhr turned for a list of subjects to be investigated and questions to be answered. The second volume bound in here is a collection of these scholars’ questions and discussions.
