Masterpieces of the written monuments of the East

A new direction “Masterpieces of the written monuments of the East” was created within the multimedia project “Cultural legacy of Uzbekistan”. It is based on the initiative of the author of the project to create a facsimile of the ancient manuscripts kept in foreign collections, which origin and history is connected with Uzbekistan.

Facsimile is a reproduction of any graphic original of the manuscript, picture, drawing, engraving, signature or monogram, which conveys them quite accurately with all the details. Facsimile editions of manuscripts and rare books are usually made for scientific purposes.
