Nubdha fi Fan al-Musiqa [The Music], New York: Al-Mohajer, 1905 [owned by Mary Elizabeth Haskell; inscribed by the Author].

A short ode to the art of music, it is the first book published by the author. He begins by comparing music to the speech of his beloved, opening the dialogue to how music was worshiped by civilizations of the past and concludes with short poetic descriptions of four modes of Middle Eastern music.
