About This Item

Half title page in French, Title page in Arabic, 85 p. of Arabic script. printed in Cairo in the 8th year of the French revolt (1800). in modern fine ornamented full lather binding of Ottoman style. Scarce. Suleiman al-Halabi, also spelled Soleyman El-Halaby (Kurdish: Seleman Ous Qopar‎, Arabic: سليمان الحلبي ‎‎ ) (1777–1800) was a Syrian Kurdish theology student in Cairo who assassinated French general Jean Baptiste Kléber, leader of the French occupation forces in Egypt. He was tortured by burning his hand to the bone before being executed by impalement. Suleiman al-Halabi was born in Kukan village, Afrin. His religious father, Mohammad Amin, worked in the profession of selling butter and olive oil. In 1797, al-Halabi's father sent him to Cairo, Egypt to study Islamic sciences at Al-Azhar University.
On June 14, 1800, al-Halabi approached Kléber's home in the guise of a beggar seeking an audience with Kléber. He was 23 years old when he assassinated the commander of the French campaign on Egyptian soil. After they shook hands, he violently pulled the general toward him and stabbed him four times with a stiletto. Kléber's chief engineer tried to defend him and was stabbed but not mortally wounded. He hid in a nearby park where he was found by French soldiers, who searched him and found his stiletto. He was arrested and tortured, his right arm burnt to the bone while he denied any relationship with Sheikh Al-Sharkawi or the popular resistance movements. He was tried and sentenced to death by impalement. Today his skull and stiletto are on display at the Musée de l'Homme in Paris, under the caption, "Criminal," written in French. (Wikipedia)
