The Library of Arabic Literature publishes authoritative Arabic editions and modern, lucid English translations. Some titles in the series, however, have ancillary or supplementary materials that could not be included in the published books. In those cases, we make those materials available on this page, which we will add to as more titles are published. We also include below errata and corrigenda.

Note: The editors regret that, due to a misprinting, a number of errors appear in the first hardcover printing of this title. This was immediately rectified with a second printing in May 2014. Readers wishing to exchange their first-print hardcover copies for the corrected second printing are invited to contact LAL’s Assistant Editor, Amanda Yee, at amanda.yee@nyu.edu. The attached errata pertains to the original misprinting, and lists only important typographical errors. The misprint does not affect the paperback edition.
