Collection description

The Persica Collection contains the Persian language literature printed in the Russian empire between 1828 and1917, which has been received as legal deposits. The collection is small and consists of only 50 volumes, mainly classic, thematically mystical Persian poetry. The collection also has textbooks and works about Koran studies as well as issues of one periodical.

Together with the Arabica, Caucasica and Turcica collections, Persica forms a significant unit of Islamic literature printed in Russia.
