Manuscripts of the Muslim World
Kitab al-ukar, 19th-century Arabic translation of 1st-century BCE treatise by Theodosius on spheres and geometrical qualities. Possibly from India. Translation by Qusta ibn Luqa. 38 foliated leaves.

“Manuscripts of the Muslim World” includes digital editions of more than 500 manuscripts and 827 paintings from the Islamicate world broadly construed. Together these holdings represent in great breadth the flourishing intellectual and cultural heritage of Muslim lands from 1000 CE to 1900, covering mathematics, astrology, history, law, literature as well as the Qur’an and Hadith. The bulk of the collection consists of manuscripts in Arabic and Persian, along with examples of Coptic, Samaritan, Syriac, Turkish and Berber.
