Alhacen's Theory of Visual Perception (First Three Books of Alhacen's de Aspectibus), Volume Two--English Translation
Between 1028-1038, Ibn al-Haytham completed his monumental optical synthesis, Kitab al-Manazir. By no later than 1200, this treatise appeared in Latin attributed to Alhacen. These differences in title and authorial designation are indicative of the profound differences between the two versions.
