The arts of the pen and the book in the Islamic world have always excited the admiration of neighbouring civilizations, as is testified by many splendid collections in the Western world. In spite of the work of generations of scholars, the riches of most collections remain largely unexplored.

Islamic Manuscripts and Books offers the modern scholar a series of volumes that will cover subjects as varied as paleography, calligraphy and codicology, manuscript illustration and illumination, the history of typography, lithography and the printed book, the theory of manuscript cataloguing, catalogues of collections of manuscripts and rare printed books, the history of collections, and text editions that reflect a special awareness of manuscripts as physical objects.
