Annotation
Two works, put into one volume at the turn of 20th century. The first part is a book of poetry and the second part captures the author's recollections from his travels. The author came from Basra, visited Medina, Mecca and Egypt. The fact that one of his travel destinations, Constantinople, lied abroad for him, shows that he had written his book before 1517 C. E. In that year, the Turks took possesion of the whole Middle East.
