All venerable old libraries have a complicated ‘back catalogue’ – quite literally. As part of his history of our Arabic collection, Visiting Research Cofund Torsten Wollina investigates the earliest manuscript catalogue – the ‘1670’.
This is the third in a series of posts from our Visiting Research Fellow Dr Torsten Wollina looking into the history of Trinity’s collection of Arabic manuscripts.
Locked out of your library? Interested in manuscript history? There’s much can be learned just from perusing the library’s online catalogue.
