St. Petersburg: Slavia, 2018. Sewn cl. This is the first complete publication of an Arabic manuscript with 96 miniatures in collection the Institute of Eastern Manuscripts (Asiatic Museum) of the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. Based on a literary text of the eleventh and early twelfth century that exists in thirteen manuscript copies, the St. Petersburg manuscript dates to the early thirteenth century and is distinguished by the excellence of the painting style. Chapters delve into the manuscript's provenance, condition, and aesthetics especially as they fit into the context of Islamic art as seen in Arabic manuscripts. The book is the result of the Oleg Georgievich Bol'shakov's several decades of research in Islamic manuscripts in Arabic at the Institute and in particular the manuscript here published, whose historical and art-historical interest lies in the knowledge to be gleaned from the content of the miniatures and the high artistic level of the painting. Its publication marks the 200th anniversary of the Asiatic Museum, founded in 1818. The manuscript "Makam" al-Khariri was one of the manuscripts in the collection acquired in 1819 through the efforts of Sergei Uvarov, who headed the Academy of Sciences and negotiated successfully with the French collector, diplomat and scholar Jean-Baptist Louis Jacques Rousseau and secured the funds from the government of Alexander I to bring some 500 works to St. Petersburg. 256 p., 30 cm, 157 color illus., Rus.
