Description :


From the 7th to 17th centuries, Muslim Civilisation stretched from southern Spain to China. Scholars of many faiths built on the ancient knowledge of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Persians, and others, making breakthroughs that paved the way for the Renaissance. 1001 Inventions uncovers a thousand years of advances in science and technology that have had a huge but hidden impact on the modern world.



This glorious book overflows with the great ideas of the Muslim middle ages. From Al-Jazari and his elegant clocks and al- Kindi and Ibn al-Haytham with their revolutionary optical theories, experiments, and books, to the astronomers who navigated across the desert by the stars, and the map-makers who put north at the bottom, every page is a mine of joyous information. There are even recipes to try out, and everything is beautifully illustrated.



Take a look at all of the discoveries that led to the great technological advances of our time; engineering, early medicinal practices, and the origins of cartography are just a few of the areas explored in this book.



1001 Inventions provides unique insight into a significant time period in Muslim history that has been looked over by much of the world. A time where discoveries were made and inventions were created that have impacted how Western civilization and the rest of the world lives today. The book will cover seven aspects of life relatable to everyone, including home, school, hospital, market, town, world and universe.
