History of Science and Medicine collection

The History of Science and Medicine collection is the foundational catalogue of the Arcadian Library. It was created to bring together one of the world's most important and unique collections of books and manuscripts relating to this topic in order to showcase the contribution of early Arab and Persian scientists, doctors and thinkers; their translation, reception and influence in Europe and their lasting influence on the development of Western scientific and medical knowledge. It comprises manuscripts, incunabula, early printed books and monographs from the 10th to twentieth centuries, including:

  • Texts on agriculture, astronomy, chemistry, herbalism, mathematics, medicine, natural history, pharmacology, philosophy, physics and surgery
  • Texts on the plants, animals and natural environment of the Middle East
  • Texts on travel and scientific expeditions exploring the Middle East
  • Texts in Arabic, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Persian and Spanish

Europe and the Ottoman World: Diplomacy and International Relations collection

The Europe and the Ottoman World: Diplomacy and International Relations collection illustrates the complex role that the Ottoman Empire played in Europe from its golden era following the capture of Constantinople in the fifteenth century through to its decline in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

  • Texts on diplomatic missions, commercial relations, Ottoman state structures, military and naval history, Ottoman expansionism, piracy, and rulers
  • Texts on the European attitudes towards the Turks and travel in the Ottoman World
  • Texts in English, French, German, Ottoman Turkish, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian and Latin.
