The Morgan Treasures of Islamic Manuscripts

It was at the urging of his librarian, Belle da Costa Greene (1879–1950), that Pierpont Morgan purchased the core of his Islamic collection in 1911 and 1912. Greene had become Morgan’s librarian in 1905 and continued working for his son, J. P. Morgan, Jr., after the senior Morgan’s death in 1913. When the Pierpont Morgan Library was established in 1924, she was named its first director.

Following are some of the images of Quranic Manuscripts from the Morgan Collection

  • arabic ornaments
  • manuscript on green leaf
  • baghdad in islamic manuscripts

  1. Manuscripts never provide period. Should their calligraphy or art sacred content provide degree? Since much of the training is cultura at its defeat under the literate origin of the learned order of scholars, governments, and their administration, I am still somewhat curious if the major body of critique (without that failed Tsuong-Pao interference) is from non-administered orders of real life and education in RCines.
