Welcome to McGill Library's Islamic Lithographs digital collection!

The Islamic Studies Library Collections at McGill University include over 750 lithographed volumes printed in the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century in the Middle East (Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Turkey), North Africa (Morocco), and South Asia (India, Pakistan).

The McGill Library's Islamic Lithographs digital collection started with a selection of sixteen Arabic lithographed books, which were physically displayed in the Islamic Studies Library between February 1st and September 30th 2014. The digitization of Islamic lithographs at McGill is now a work in progress, and this digital collection is therefore a continually updated resource.

Visitors can browse the collection by country of publication or language. All books are accessible full text, either in PDF on the McGill website, or using the online reader of the Internet Archive.
