The History of the Caliphs by Suyuti

The History of the Caliphs

Extensive as is the reputation of as Suyuti as a distinguished author 

and scholar, and unsurpassed for the number and range of the works which 

in every branch of literature known to his age, his unwearied pen never 

ceased to produce, 

we are indebted to the malice or envy of but one of his 

contemporaries and to his own testimony, for the few details of his life 

and studies that we possess.

By far the greater part of his writings were on subjects which have no interest to a European
