Persian Language Rare Materials

"These rare Persian manuscripts, lithographs and early imprint  books comprise works in many disciplines, but historical and literary works are dominant. A number of these items are exquisitely illuminated anthologies of poetry by classic and lesser known poets, written in fine calligraphic styles, and  illustrated with miniatures. Many also have beautiful bindings. A number of the illuminated books are multilingual works, which include Arabic and Turkish passages in addition to Persian, focusing on scientific, religious - philosophical and literary topics, and others are holy books important to all confessional traditions within the Islamic world.."

This collection is part of the African, Jewish, and Middle Eastern Studies: Digital Resources at the Library of Congress
