Riassunto: Among the treasures of the Pierpont Morgan Library there is a small but choice collection of Islamic and Indian material, including illustrated manuscripts, single miniatures, albums of paintings and calligraphies, bookbindings of leather and painted papier mache, and Qur'ans and Qur'anic sections from Persia, Turkey, India, and Arab countries. They include over 1000 miniature paintings from the 13th to the 19th centuries and nearly 200 vellum Qur'an leaves from the 9th to the 11th centuries.
Many of the manuscripts and paintings -- all of which are fully described in this volume -- are reproduced here for the first time. Consisting of six sections: Persian, Turkish, Arabic, Albums, Provincial Mughal, and Indian, this catalog contains numerous indexes, including an iconographic index of miniatures. In addition to being an indispensable contribution to the field, the volume will prove to be a revelation for both student and scholar.
