According to the Wikipedia page on Michael the Syrian: This work "is extant in a single manuscript written in 1598 in Syriac in a Serto hand. This was copied from an earlier manuscript, itself copied from Michael's autograph. The manuscript is today held in a locked box in a church in Aleppo and not accessible to scholarship. However the French scholar Jean-Baptiste Chabot arranged for a copy to be made by hand in 1888 and published a photographic reproduction in four volumes (1899?1910), with a French translation." This is a reprint of that copy which Chabot made of the text. In French and Syrian (French translation of Syriac, while Syriac text is also included). Complete four volume set. Red cloth cover with gilt lettering on spine. First 3 volumes contain French translation, while last volume is the Syriac text. Each volume is about 550 pp, except for 4th volume, which is 777 pp. Binding is tight. Notes in pencil in front end-pages of volume I, and on title page of volume I. Back inner hinge of volume I is broken, however the cover remains attached to the book via the front inner hinge. No annotation or foxing in these books. Full refund if not satisfied.
