First editions, a few issues signed by contributors and editors, including several by the founding editor, Oleg Grabar. This journal aimed to "provide a regular vehicle for scholarship and critical essays on Islamic art... and to make scholarship and discussions as widely available as possible, especially in Muslim countries" (vol. 1, p. ix). was founded in 1983 and still runs; "in a highly specialised field with relatively few and short-lived or sporadic journals, the regular annual publication of Muqarnas... has been exceptional indeed. Today few would question the major impact of the journal" (vol. 30, p. 7). This collection also includes five of the thirteen supplements issued by the journal: Sinan's Autobiographies by Howard Crane and Esra Akin, Mir'at al-Quds (Mirror of Holiness): A Life of Christ for Emperor Akbar by Pedro Moura Carvalho, Timurid Art and Culture by Lisa Golomek and Maria Subtelny, Album Prefaces and Other Documents on the History of Calligraphers and Painters by Wheeler Thackston, and Islamic Architecture in Cairo by Doris Behrens-Abouseif.
