private collection

Brother was commissioned to produce a total of six books cataloguing just a few of the extensive collections belonging to a private individual. These documents included collections of Fatimid coins, Fatimid glass coin weights and miniature paintings on the beginnings of Islam.

And diverse are their hues

This book contains a collection of 147 Fatimid glass coin-weights from the tenth and eleventh centuries.
