History of the Islam written by the Leiden scholar Reinhart Pieter Anne Dozy (1820-1883). This Orientalist marked the end of a specific period in Islamology in The Netherlands, the next phase was the religious historical one, which was dominated entirely by Snouck Hurgronje (Boland & Farjon, Islam in Indonesia, p.13). It was translated into French, German and Turkish. The fine plates depict i.a. Muna (Mina), Makkah (Mecca), Al-Madinah (Medina), the mosques in Jerusalem and Damascus, pilgrims and the dance of the Dervishes.
