The Annals of the Prophets and Kings (
Taʾrīkh al-rusul wa-l-mulūk) by al-Ṭabarī (d. 923 C.E.) is one of the most important historical works about the first centuries of Muslim society in Arabic. This is an enhanced reprint of the classic Brill edition supervised by M.J. de Goeje, originally titled
Annales quos scripsit Abu Djafar Mohammed Ibn Djarir At-Tabari. The Andalusian scholar ʿArīb b. Saʿd al-Qurṭubī (d. c. 980 C.E.) later composed a résumé of al-Ṭabarī’s
Annals, which he continued down to his own times. That volume is also included here. To this day the De Goeje edition remains the only edition of the
Annals with extensive indices.
