They rather form a collection of historical essays concerning a few of those monuments which interested me particularly among the rich treasures of Moslem art to be found inC airo. I had begun to collect the materials for them before special war circumstances induced me to writeR ambles inC airo for the benefit of the soldiers stationed here, and, in that work, I purposely avoided a detailed mention of these mosques, hoping that I might yet carry out my previous intention. In the meanwhile, I utilised some of the materials for a few articles in the Cairo Sphinx, which will be found to be practically embodied in the present volume.
