Excerpt from A Catalogue of the Collection of Persian Manuscripts: Including Also Some Turkish and Arabic, Presented to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
The preparation of this catalogue has been a pleasant task during the past two years, though the appearance of the work has been considerably delayed by the many exactions of univer sity duties. The plan followed in describing the manuscripts was originally adopted in conference with Mr. Cochran while he was collecting them for his own library, and now that he has presented the collection to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in order to make it accessible to the public, the plan then designed seems equally suitable for the purpose of the general exhibition of the collection.
