In an unpublished study from the late 1990s, Richard Lemay presented his discovery that the cosmological text in the Latin manuscript no. 930 of the Médiathèque (formerly Bibliothèque municipale or B. communale) of Cambrai contains a commented Latin translation of Ibn al-Haytham’s Arabic cosmography, On the Configuration of the World (Maqāla fı̄ hayʾat al-ʿālam).
