    Catalogue of Sanskrit Manuscripts: Early Acquisitions and the Nepal Collection2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This first-ever catalogue in English of the Danish National Library's rich Sanskrit holdings analyses and describes three of the manuscript collections held by the library.

    The first is the Codices Sanscriti, collected in the early nineteenth century by the pioneer comparative linguist, Rasmus Rask, comprises both palm-leaf and paper manuscripts, most written in either Bengali, Telugu or Sinhalese script.

    The second - the Codices Indici - was collected by the surgeon and botanist, Nathanael Wallich (well-known for his involvement in the foundation of the Indian Museum and Botanical Garden atCalcutta). Mostly written in Bengali script on locally produced country paper, most of these codices pertain to the genre of Ayurveda.

    The third and largest collection originates from Nepal and was collected in the 1950s by the cultural anthropologist Werner Jacobsen. Its highly heterogenous nature reflects the fact that Jacobsen had an ethnographical curator's eye for curious objects.

    Together these comprise a rich offering to philologists, anthropologists and historians of religion, art and iconography.

    Catalogue of Japanese Manuscripts and Rare Books2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This catalogue explores the entire collection of early Japanese woodblock-printed books, maps and single-sheet prints held in the Royal Library, Copenhagen, these appearing for the first time in print. The collection spans the whole of the Edo period (1603–1867). Items from the latter part of the Edo period are best represented with many literary genres including Japanese editions of Chinese classical works. The woodblock-printed books and single-sheet prints of the Meiji period (1868–1912) are also included. The catalogue comprises 152 entries covering multi-volume works and series of woodblock prints and provides both concise bibliographical data and additional material gathered from various sources. It furthermore provides reproductions of pages of each of the books and a representative selection of the woodblock prints for a visual appreciation of the works. The introduction outlines the history of the collection, identifying some of the more important items and explains the bibliographical principles on which the catalogue has been compiled. Indexes and a comprehensive list of references are also included.

    Catalogue of Persian Manuscripts [Volume 1]: Codices Persici Arthur Christenseniani, Codices Simonseniani Persici, Codices Persici Additamenta2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This two-volume work describes three collections of Persian manuscripts and lithographic prints at the Royal Library, Copenhagen: 155 manuscripts and lithographs acquired by Arthur Christensen in Iran, 10 manuscripts collected by David Simonsen and 102 manuscripts acquired by the Library. All items have been included in the holdings of the Library after the publication of the previous catalogue in 1857.

              The Persian manuscripts included in the three collections cover a variety of topics, the major fields being poetry and history. The oldest date from the 9th H/15th CE century and the most recent from the 14th H/20th CE century. Among the items described, there is a substantial number of Qāğār-period lithographs, many of them illustrated. A special group of lithographs is formed by four diaries written by the Qāğār ruler Nāṣer al-Dīn Šāh (ruled 1264–1313 H [1848–1896 CE]). In the diaries, the Nāṣer al-Dīn Šāh describes his travels in Iran, Iraq and Europe.

              Designed especially as an essential source of reference for scholars working in all aspects of manuscript studies, the catalogue includes over 500 full-page illustrations (some in colour) that help identify each of the manuscripts.

    Illicit trade in cultural artefacts: Stronger together: How can the Nordics join forces to stop the illegal import and export of cultural objects?2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This publication is a report from the Nordic expert conference “Illicit trade in cultural artefacts. Stronger together: How can the Nordics join forces to stop the illegal import and export of cultural objects?” which was held in Oslo, 2 to 3 December 2015, following an initiative of the Nordic Ministers of Culture. The objective of the conference was to explore the potential for a closer Nordic collaboration in order to better meet the states' obligations under international cultural conventions and the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2199 on measures to prevent financing of extremist groups and their activities. A number of knowledgeable speakers shared their insights into current global challenges as regards cultural heritage protection. A particular concern is the ongoing looting in war-torn areas in the Middle East. The conference resulted in 13 joint follow-up recommendations.
