This article describes a group of medieval Arabic block prints from the collection of Aziz S. Atiya preserved (with one exception) at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah. It provides transcriptions of the texts, translations and notes, and discusses some aspects of the history of block-printing in the Middle East. This article also considers the place of block-printed amulets within the larger Islamic magical tradition, and examines parallels in a variety of sources.
