and Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts
May 15, 2017tjdickey rated this title 4.5 out of 5 stars
A very readable story about the creation of a major collection of documents within a center of ancient Islamic learning, and more recent existential threats to the existence of the works, and the heroic efforts by librarians to save the manuscript collection.
