After the sudden death of ‫ﺒﻌﺩ ﺍﻟﻭﻓﺎﺓ ﺍﻟﻤﻔﺎﺠﺌﺔ ﻟﻺﺴﻜﻨﺩﺭ ﺍﻷﻜﺒﺭ‬ Alexander the Great of Macedony, -‫ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺩﻭﻨﻲ ﺘﻭﻟﻰ ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ ﺍﻷﻭل-ﺴﻭﺘﻴﺭ‬ Ptolemy I, Sotir, took the throne and made Alexandria capital of his ‫ﺤﻜﻡ ﻤﺼﺭ ﻭﺠﻌل ﺍﻹﺴﻜﻨﺩﺭﻴﺔ ﻋﺎﺼﻤﺔ‬ kingdom. .‫ﻟﻤﻠﻜﻪ‬ Ptolemy I wanted to make ‫ﺃﺭﺍﺩ ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ ﺍﻷﻭل ﺃﻥ ﻴﺠﻌل‬ Alexandria a world wonder and ‫ﺍﻹﺴﻜﻨﺩﺭﻴﺔ ﺇﺤﺩﻯ ﻋﺠﺎﺌﺏ ﺍﻟﺩﻨﻴﺎ ﻭﻷﻨﻪ ﻜﺎﻥ‬ because he was enthusiastic for learning and discovery, he entrusted ‫ﻤﺘﺤﻤﺴﺎ ﻟﻠﻌﻠﻡ ﻭﺍﻻﻜﺘﺸﺎﻑ ﻓﻘﺩ ﻋﻬﺩ ﺍﻟﻰ‬ Demetrius of Phalerum with ‫ﺩﻴﻤﺘﺭﻴﻭﺱ ﺍﻟﻔﺎﺭﻴﺭﻱ ﺒﺒﻨﺎﺀ ﻤﺭﻜﺯ ﻟﻠﺒﺤﺙ‬ building a research centre, the ‫ﻋﺭﻑ ﺒﺎﺴﻡ ﺍﻟﻤﻭﺴﻴﻭﻥ ﻭﻜﺫﻟﻙ ﺇﻗﺎﻤﺔ ﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ‬ Mouseion, and a library to serve the Mouseion Scholars.

  26. 26. The ancient Library of ‫ﻜﺎﻨﺕ ﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﺍﻹﺴﻜﻨﺩﺭﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻘﺩﻴﻤﺔ ﻤﺘﻔﺭﺩﺓ‬ Alexandria was unique as it offered ‫ﻋﻥ ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﺒﺎﺕ ﺍﻷﺨﺭﻯ ﺇﺫ ﻗﺩﻤﺕ ﺘﺠﺭﺒﺔ‬ a new experience in history of human knowledge and it sought to ‫ﻓﺭﻴﺩﺓ ﻓﻲ ﺘﺎﺭﻴﺦ ﺍﻟﻤﻌﺭﻓﺔ ﺍﻹﻨﺴﺎﻨﻴﺔ ﻭﺴﻌﺕ‬ house the knowledge and ‫ﺍﻟﻰ ﺍﺤﺘﻭﺍﺀ ﻤﻌﻠﻭﻤﺎﺕ ﻭﻋﻠﻭﻡ ﺍﻟﻤﻌﺭﻓﺔ ﻋﻨﺩ‬ experience of others. But other ‫ﺍﻟﻐﻴﺭ ﻓﻲ ﺤﻴﻥ ﺃﻥ ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﺒﺎﺕ ﺍﻷﺨﺭﻯ ﻜﺎﻥ‬ libraries were primarily local or regional and were community- ‫ﻴﻐﻠﺏ ﺍﻟﻁﺎﺒﻊ ﺍﻟﻤﺤﻠﻲ ﻭﺍﻹﻗﻠﻴﻤﻲ ﻭﺍﻻﻫﺘﻤﺎﻡ‬ based. .‫ﺒﺸﺌﻭﻥ ﺍﻟﻤﺠﺘﻤﻊ‬ Thus, Bibliotheca Alexandrina ‫ﻭﻫﻜﺫﺍ ﺍﺤﺘﻭﺕ ﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﺍﻹﺴﻜﻨﺩﺭﻴﺔ‬ housed the treasures of human ‫ﺍﻟﻘﺩﻴﻤﺔ ﻋﻠﻰ ﻜﻨﻭﺯ ﺍﻟﺘﺭﺍﺙ ﺍﻻﻨﺴﺎﻨﻲ ﻭﻗﺩ‬ thought. It was universal as it ‫ﻜﺎﻨﺕ ﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﻋﺎﻟﻤﻴﺔ ﺘﺠﻤﻌﺕ ﻓﻴﻬﺎ ﻜﺘﺎﺒﺎﺕ‬ included writings from various ‫ﻭﺜﻘﺎﻓﺎﺕ ﺠﻤﻴﻊ ﺍﻟﺸﻌﻭﺏ ﺒﻘﺩﺭ ﻤﺎ ﻫﻲ ﺠﺩﻴﺭﺓ‬ cultures that were worthly to be read and studied. Under Potelmies ‫ﺒﺎﻟﻘﺭﺍﺀﺓ ﻭﺍﻟﺩﺭﺍﺴﺔ ﻜﻤﺎ ﻗﺎﻡ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻤﺎﺀ ﻓﻲ‬ these treasures were translated into ‫ﻋﺼﺭ ﺍﻟﺒﻁﺎﻟﻤﺔ ﺒﺘﺭﺠﻤﺔ ﻜل ﻫﺫﻩ ﺍﻟﻜﻨﻭﺯ‬ Greek. . ‫ﺍﻟﻔﻜﺭﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻐﺔ ﺍﻟﻴﻭﻨﺎﻨﻴﺔ‬ At that time the shape of the ‫ﻜﺎﻥ ﺸﻜل ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﻗﺩﻴﻤﺎ ﻴﺨﺘﻠﻑ ﻋﻥ‬ book was different from its present ‫ﺸﻜﻠﻪ ﺍﻟﺤﺎﻟﻲ ﺇﺫ ﻜﺎﻥ ﻋﺒﺎﺭﺓ ﻋﻥ ﻟﻔﺎﻓﺔ ﻁﻭﻴﻠﺔ‬ shape. The book was a long scroll ‫ﻴﻜﺘﺏ ﻋﻠﻴﻬﺎ ﻤﻥ ﺍﻟﻴﻤﻴﻥ ﻟﻠﻴﺴﺎﺭ ﻟﻭ ﻜﺎﻨﺕ‬ and the writing was from right to left if in Ancient Egyptian and from ‫ﺒﺎﻟﻠﻐﺔ ﺍﻟﻤﺼﺭﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻘﺩﻴﻤﺔ ﻭﻤﻥ ﺍﻟﻴﺴﺎﺭ ﻟﻠﻴﻤﻴﻥ‬ left to right if in Greek. The scroll ‫ﻟﻭ ﻜﺎﻨﺕ ﺒﺎﻟﻠﻐﺔ ﺍﻟﻴﻭﻨﺎﻨﻴﺔ ﻭﻜﺎﻨﺕ ﺍﻟﻠﻔﺎﺌﻑ‬ was placed in a cylindrical case that ‫ﺘﻭﻀﻊ ﻓﻲ ﺍﺴﻁﻭﺍﻨﺎﺕ ﻓﻲ ﻭﻀﻊ ﺃﻓﻘﻲ ﻋﻠﻰ‬ was kept horizontally on the library ‫ﺍﺭﻓﻑ ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﻭﻗﺩ ﺒﻠﻐﺕ ﺃﻋﺩﺍﺩﻫﺎ ﺤﻭﺍﻟﻲ‬ shelves. There were about 900.000 scrolls in all branches of ‫ﺘﺴﻌﻤﺎﺌﺔ ﺃﻟﻑ ﺒﺭﺩﻴﺔ ﻓﻲ ﺠﻤﻴﻊ ﻓﺭﻭﻉ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻡ‬ knowledge. . ‫ﻭﺍﻟﻤﻌﺭﻓﺔ‬
  27. 27. Scholars made use of scribes ‫ﻭﻗﺩ ﻜﺎﻥ ﻴﺴﺘﻌﻴﻥ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻤﺎﺀ ﺒﻜﺘﺎﺏ‬ and the fee of the scribe was determined according to the quality ‫ﺃﻭﻨﺎﺴﺨﻴﻥ ﻭﻜﺎﻥ ﺃﺠﺭ ﺍﻟﻜﺎﺘﺏ ﻴﺤﺩﺩ ﺤﺴﺏ‬ of the writing and the number of lines. .‫ﺠﻭﺩﺓ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺒﺔ ﻭﻋﺩﺩ ﺍﻷﺴﻁﺭ‬ Callimachus, who laid the ‫ﻗﺎﻡ ﻜﺎﻟﻴﻤﺎﺨﻭﺱ ﻋﺎﻟﻡ ﺍﻟﻔﻬﺭﺴﺔ ﺒﺘﻘﺴﻴﻡ‬ principles of the indexing system, divided the Library according to ‫ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﺍﻟﻰ ﻋﺩﺓ ﻓﺭﻭﻉ ﺤﺴﺏ ﺍﻟﻤﻭﻀﻭﻋﺎﺕ‬ topics. About the book itself, ‫ﻭﻋﻥ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﺫﺍﺘﻪ ﺫﻜﺭ ﺍﻟﻤﻨﺸﺄ ﻭﺍﺴﻡ ﺼﺎﺤﺏ‬ indexing involved recording the origin of the book, the name of the ‫ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﺃﻭ ﺍﻟﻤﺯﻭﺩ ﺒﻪ ﻭﻨﻭﻋﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ‬ owner, the name of the supplier, the ‫ﻭﺍﻟﻤﺅﻟﻑ ﺃﻭ ﺍﻟﻤﺅﻟﻔﻴﻥ ﻭﻋﺩﺩ ﺍﻷﺴﻁﺭ‬ ‫ﻭﻤﺤﺘﻭﻯ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ، ﻜﻤﺎ ﻗﺎﻡ ﻜﺎﻟﻴﻤﺎﺨﻭﺱ ﺒﻌﻤل‬ sort of the book, the author or authors, the number of lines and the content of the book. As well, ‫ﺴﺠﻼﺕ ﻋﻥ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻤﺎﺀ ﺍﻟﻤﺘﻤﻴﺯﻴﻥ ﻓﻲ ﻜل‬ Callimachus listed the authors in . ‫ﻓﺭﻭﻉ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻡ ﻭﺍﻟﻤﻌﺭﻓﺔ‬ various branches of knowledge. Thanks to the indexing system, ‫ﺒﻔﻀل ﻋﻠﻡ ﺍﻟﻔﻬﺭﺴﺔ ﻟﻡ ﻴﺠﺩ ﺍﻟﻘﺎﺭﺉ‬ the reader did not find any ‫ﺼﻌﻭﺒﺔ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﻭﺼﻭل ﺍﻟﻰ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﺍﻟﺫﻯ ﻜﺎﻥ‬ difficulty to get the needed book. The system of indexing and ‫ﻴﺭﻴﺩ ﺍﻟﻭﺼﻭل ﺇﻟﻴﻪ ﻭﻗﺭﺍﺀﺘﻪ ﻭﻗﺩ ﻜﺎﻥ ﻟﻌﻠﻡ‬ bibliography has had a great effect ‫ﺍﻟﻔﻬﺭﺴﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﺘﺼﻨﻴﻑ ﺍﻋﻅﻡ ﺘﺄﺜﻴﺭ ﻋﻠﻰ ﻜل‬ not only on the ages that followed ‫ﺍﻟﻌﺼﻭﺭ ﺍﻟﺘﺎﻟﻴﺔ ﻟﻪ ﻭﻋﻠﻰ ﻜل ﻋﻠﻤﺎﺀ‬ Callimachus but on the indexing scholars as well. . ‫ﺍﻟﻔﻬﺭﺴﺔ‬ In 283 B.C., Ptolemy II ‫ﻓﻲ ﻋﺎﻡ ٣٨٢ ﻕ.ﻡ ﺘﻭﻟﻰ ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ‬ succeeded his father Ptolemy I. He ‫ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻨﻲ ﺍﻟﺤﻜﻡ ﺒﻌﺩ ﻭﺍﻟﺩﻩ ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ ﺍﻷﻭل ﻭﻗﺩ‬ arrested Demetrius of Phalerum and exiled him to Delta where he died ‫ﺃﻤﺭ ﺒﺎﻟﻘﺒﺽ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺩﻴﻤﺘﺭﻴﻭﺱ ﺍﻟﻔﺎﻟﻴﺭﻱ ﻭﺘﻡ‬ there. Ptolemy II did so because ‫ﻨﻔﻴﻪ ﺍﻟﻰ ﺍﻟﺩﻟﺘﺎ ﺤﻴﺙ ﻤﺎﺕ ﻫﻨﺎﻙ. ﻜﺎﻥ ﺫﻟﻙ‬ Demetrius had advised Ptolemy I to ‫ﻻﻥ ﺩﻴﻤﺘﺭﻴﻭﺱ ﻜﺎﻥ ﻗﺩ ﺃﺸﺎﺭ ﻋﻠﻰ‬ name another brother to be the heir to the throne instead of himself. ‫ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ ﺍﻷﻭل ﺃﻥ ﻴﻭﻟﻲ ﻋﺭﺸﻪ ﻻﺒﻥ ﺁﺨﺭ‬ .‫ﻏﻴﺭ ﺒﻁﻠﻴﻤﻭﺱ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻨﻲ‬
