First edition of Wallin’s dissertation on the differences between classical and modern Arabic.

Georg Augustus Wallin (1811–1852) was a Finnish orientalist and explorer. He travelled the Arab world for six years, and disguised himself as Muslim to gain acceptance in the two holy Islamic cities, Mecca and Medina, which at the time were still forbidden to holders of other faiths.
