Description

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.
