3. The History Of The Mosque Of Mekka, With Which The History Of The Town Is Interwoven, Called El Aalam Hy Aalam Beled Allah El Haram, In One Volume Quarto.

The author was Kottob ed' dyn el Mekky, who held high offices at Mekka, and brings the history down to the year 990 of the Hedjra.

4. The History of the Hedjaz, and more particularly of Mekka, by Asamy. Of this chronicle I possess only the second volume, a large folio manuscript, comprising historical records from the time of the Beni Omeya, to the year (of the Hedjra) 1097. I have not been able to ascertain the title of this work, which abounds with curious and valuable information. The author, Asamy, was a native of Mekka.

5. The History of the Temple and Town of Medina. This work is entitled Khelaset el Wafa, its author was Nour ed' dyn Aly Ibn Ahmed e' Samhoudy, [To this writer Burckhardt refers in p. 323, by the letters (V.S.) "Vide Sumhoudy."] and it is comprised in one folio volume, bringing the history down to the year 911 of the Hedjra.
