The Arabic Papyrus collection at Dar al Kotob is indeed unique as it will reveal for the first time the handwriting of the people, rather than the eloquent drawing of scripts by professional calligraphers. Through out this catalogue of selected folios from the collection, we draw your attention to different script styles used by the locals. Culminating with an attempt to label or name these styles and date them. We feel that identifying them would greatly contribute in revealing, dating and understanding many other documents and holdings found in archives and libraries from around the world.
