Argentine Railways, 1899

This 1899 map, issued by the Buenos Ayres and Pacific Railway Company, of London ...

Refinement of Character
Tahdhib al-akhlaq (Refinement of character) is a guide to practical conduct by the famous Iranian polymath Ibn Miskawayh (died 1030). It is considered a primary contribution to the field of ethics.

Ibn Miskawayh is sometimes categorized with Shia ...
