Abstract:In this work translations of four texts are provided from Ghadamis and from Mali. The first is a biography of the Ghadamisi scholar 'Abdallah b. Abi Bakr al-Ghadamisi (16261719 AD), written by the eighteenth-century author Ibn Muhalhil al-Ghadamisi. A second text is 'The History of al-Suq', concerning al-Suq, the historic town of Tadmakka and the original home of the Kel-Essouk Tuareg. The third text is 'The Precious Jewel in the Saharan histories of the 'People of the Veil'' by Muhammad Tawjaw al-Suqi al-Thani, a contemporary Tuareg author. It pertains to the Kel-Essouk and their historical ties with the Maghreb and West Africa. The final text is a description of the Tuareg from the book 'Ghadamis, its features, its images and its sights' by Bashir Qasim Yusha', published in Arabic in 2001 AD.
