  • Existence: 1766 - 1820


José Antonio Conde y García (1766–1820) was a Spanish Orientalist and historian of Al-Andalus period. His "Anacreon" (1791) obtained him a post in the royal library in 1795. He also published several paraphrases of Greek classics. These were followed in 1799 by an edition of the Arabic text of Muhammad al-Idrisi's Description of Spain, with notes and a translation. As an afrancesado, he fled Spain in 1813, but returned a year later and was eventually reinstated to his honors. His magnum opus, the three-volume "Historia de la Dominación de los Árabes en España," was published after his death.
