Chapter Summary

This chapter presents 65 illustrations of the major Arabic letterforms. Their names and their descriptions are also presented. This book, Arabic Manuscripts, concentrates on gathering data for various regions and historical periods. We cannot have a complete picture of the history and development of various practices in Arabic manuscripts unless this research is first conducted. many of the practices in Arabic codicology and palaeography are also encountered in other manuscript traditions such as Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. Awareness therefore of the correct terminology and techniques of investigation used in non-Islamic manuscripts is indispensable.

Keywords: Arabic codicology; Arabic letterforms; Arabic manuscripts; calligraphy; Ottoman texts
