Summary

This series, which is made up of four volumes, is a comprehensive survey of the collections of Islamic manuscripts in the world and the ways to arrive at them. The review includes 105 countries.
This encyclopaedic work is the product of a number of specialists in the field who are aware of the physical locations of manuscripts around the world. This is a compilation of detailed, independent studies on the number of manuscripts and the languages they are written including Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and Swahili. Locations of manuscripts in public or private libraries are also listed. The study also includes published catalogues of collections and the titles of the catalogues which have been compiled but which have not been issued by their libraries yet. Titles of rare manuscripts discovered amongst these collections are also included.
The review was widened to include post-soviet countries and former Yugoslavia as well as countries whose manuscripts have become recently known for the first time, especially in Africa.
The broader review also comprises a list of languages, notables and names of collections, libraries and titles.
