The Islamic Studies Library is pleased to display a new exhibition featuring a fascinating selection of Arabic lithographed books from the Islamic Rare Books Collection. Invented in Germany in 1796, the printing technique called “lithography” remained a subsidiary method for book production in Europe, but quickly spread to the Muslim world.
