Treasures of the Manuscripts Division

Treasures of the Manuscripts Division offers a selection of extraordinary holdings that have been collected since the late 19th century. The Division holds approximately 12,000 linear feet of materials, spanning five millennia of recorded history, from the Ancient Near East to the present. The manuscripts are located in the Manuscripts Division, Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, Princeton University Library (at the Harvey S. Firestone Memorial Library). Note: The Digital Library of Islamic Manuscripts is so substantial that it is a separate section in DPUL.
