The Arabic manuscrip[t] tradition : a glossary of technical terms and bibliography by Adam Gacek( Book )
49 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Arabic and held by 436 libraries worldwide
"Covering the entire spectrum of Arabic manuscripts, and especially the handwritten book, this book consists of a glossary of technical terms and a bibliography. The technical terms, collected from a variety of sources, embrace a vast range of topics dealing with the making and reading (studying) of Arabic manuscripts. They include: the Arabic script, penmanship, writing materials and implements, the make-up of the codex, copying and correction, decoration and bookbinding. A similar coverage is reflected in the bibliography. In view of the fact that, as yet, there is no concise monograph on Arabic manuscripts in the English language, this book is an important contribution to this field. And, since Arabic manuscripts represent an enormous resource for research, this work is an indispensible reference for all students of Islamic civilization."--Jacket

McGill University possesses excellent collections of manuscripts in many different languages including Arabic, Persian, Latin, Sanskrit, and Pali. In the past, these manuscripts have received little attention from scholars because of insufficient or erroneous descriptions. A new generation of scholars has begun the detailed examination of some of these collections and this is the first catalogue of one group of manuscripts to be published. Arabic Manuscripts provides accurate and detailed information on 275 Arabic manuscripts covering all aspects of the traditional Islamic disciplines: Qur'anic studies, natural history, medicine, mathematics, and astronomy
