Mütefferiḳa digitized!

Ībrāhīm Mütefferiḳa established the first printing press in the Muslim world in the 12th A.H./18th A.D. century. It was based in Istanbul and helped propel a revolution in the manners of book printing in the Muslim world.

McGill University holds a number of these incunabula. Recently a digital project was completed and 14 works are now available via the McGill library catalogue.
