Kâtip Çelebi

This map of the [[Indian Ocean]] and the [[Chinese Sea]] was engraved in 1728 by the Hungarian-born Ottoman cartographer and publisher [[Ibrahim Muteferrika|Ibrahim Müteferrika]]; it is one of a series that illustrated Katip Çelebi's ''Universal Geography'', the first printed book of maps and drawings to appear in the Islamic world. Kâtip Çelebi (, "Gentleman Scribe") (variants: Kātib Çelebi; Katib Tchélébi; ‘Abdallāh Kātib Jelebi; Chalabi; Muṣṭafa Ben Hājī Khalīfah; Hâcci Halfa () (), Haji Khalifa, Hajji Khalifeh, Hazi Halife, Hadschi Chalfa, Khalfa and Kalfa), (*1017 AH / 1609 AD in Istanbul, d. 1068 AH / 1657 AD).

He was '''Muṣṭafa ibn 'Abd Allāh''' (), a celebrated Ottoman-Turkish polymath, and a leading literary author of the 17th-century Ottoman Empire. He compiled bibliographic, geographic and historical encyclopaedias, in addition to writing many treatises and essays. Regarded a “a deliberate and impartial historian… of extensive learning”, Franz Babinger claimed him to be the greatest encyclopaedist among the Ottomans.

With equal facility in ''Alsina-i Thalātha'' - the three languages of Ottoman imperial administration, Arabic, Turkish and Persian – he wrote principally in Arabic and then in Turkish, his native tongue. He also collaborated on translations from French and Latin. His magnum opus, the famous bibliographic encyclopaedia, ''Kaşf az-Zunūn ‘an 'asāmī ‘l-Kutub wa-l’fanūn'' (), or simply ''Kaşf az-Zunūn'', was published in seven volumes under the Latin title ''Lexicon Bibliographicum et Encyclopaedicum'' by the German orientalist Gustav Leberecht Flügel. The great compendium, ''Bibliothèque Orientale'' by the French orientalist Barthélemy d'Herbelot de Molainville was principally a translation of ''Kaşf az-Zunūn'' with additional material. He combined a complete acceptance of Islam with adherence to ''Ishrāqī'' (Illuminationist philosophy). Provided by Wikipedia
