The use of the astrolabe in the Arab world began  in  the  East (the Mashriq)what we know today as Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and  Egypt extending  widely by  North  Africa (the Maghrib),  entering   almost immediately  in   Muslim Spain, being already found astrolabes made in Toledo in the XI century.However much earlier in the V century, it is dated a treatise  attributed to Ibn al-Saffar that greatly influenced on later centuries in Europe,  thanks to the translation in the twelfth century by Juan de Sevilla.The treaty incorporating the construction and the instructions for use of the astrolabe  and was  republished several times becoming the  treated  most widely  used   for centuries .We can say that all treaties were  based  in  one way or  another in the first  treaties  of eastern Islam, hence the adoption  in Europe of Arabic names for  the stars and  other astronomical  elements.
 
The transmission of Arab scientific knowledge to Christian Europe, began mainly in the Monasteries closest  of Arab Andalusia , being the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll ,the main center of Latin translation of all these documents during the X and XI century.
 
The replica made by Antiquus corresponding to the one made by Muhammad Muqim, Lahore, 1643/4 and it is exhibited in The Oxford Museum of Science
It takes instructions for its use and it goes in  nice casing in witch is included the pedestal of wood for its exhibition.
The perfect gift for curious and intelligent people
