Basagic’s Prized Islamic Manuscripts on Display at National Library

Parts of Bosnian writer Safvet Beg Bašagić’s collection of Islamic manuscripts are on display at an exhibition in the National Library in Tehran.
On view at the library’s Museum of Book and Documented Heritage are Islamic manuscripts and prints collected by Bašagić, also known as Mirza Safvet (1870-1934), who is considered the father of Bosnian Renaissance.
The manuscripts are borrowed from the University Library of Bratislava, the oldest library in Slovakia, ILNA reported.
Bašagić tried to preserve the collection in a more secure place than was the Balkan region of his time. In the turbulent developments in the Balkan region in the 19th and 20th centuries, his valuable collection eventually found a safe haven in the University Library.
