In classical Arabic literature, adaband history are closely related. Collections such as al-Masʿūdī’s Murūj al-dhahab, Ibn Qutayba’s Kitāb al-Maʿārifor the Muʿjam al-buldānby Yāqūt are proper hybrids of history and adab: History often includes adabapproaches, and adabregularly incorporates historical akhbār. The multivolume encyclopedia al-ʿIqd al-farīd, “the Unique Necklace,” composed by the Andalusī Ibn ʿAbd Rabbih (246/860-328/940) fits very well into the adabideal of cultural broadness. In addition to numerous historical anecdotes, the ʿIqd al-farīdincorporates a lengthy and very peculiar monographic section on caliphal history, an early example of history in adab. These passages have received little attention in the study of early Arabic historiography so far; however, they definitely deserve a closer investigation.
