Because of the lack of systematically treated material from the period preceding the fifteenth century, the publication of an exhaustive study on the historical and artistic development of Persian bookbinding is almost impossible at the present time. It is not the writer's purpose to present here a historical or stylistic study of the subject, but rather to add to already published material additional specimens of artistic value, which may extend the hitherto scanty knowledge concerning the art of Persian bookbinding of the century in question. This book appears as a contribution from the University of Michigan Research Seminary in Islamic Art, which owes its existence to the interest of Dr. Alexander G. Ruthven, President of the University, and Professor John G. Winter, Director of the Division of Fine Arts.
