Item description for Otot Ha-Shamayim: Samuel Ibn Tibbon's Hebrew Version of Aristotle's Meteorology : A Critical Edition (Aristoteles Semitico-Latinus, Vol 8) by Resianne Fontaine, Shmuel Ibn Tibbon, Resianne Fontaine & Aristotle...
This volume provides a critical edition, translation and introduction to the "Otot ha-Shamayim", Samuel Ibn Tibbon's Hebrew version of Aristotle's "Meteorology", completed in 1210. This treatise, based on the Arabic paraphrase of the "Meteorology" by Ibn al-Bittriq, was the first Aristotelian work to be translated into Hebrew. It contains quotations from the lost Arabic translation of Alexander of Aphrodisias's commentary on the "Meteorology" and from Ibn Rushd's commentary, and aims to provide a more complete picture of Aristotle's text than the Arabic paraphrase.
