"The library of Mohamed and Margaret Makiya is a testament to their shared passion for books and works on paper. The collection embraces the culture of the Middle East and the wider Islamic world, and its connections with Europe. It also represents the particular interest of Margaret Makiya in accounts of European travellers (especially women) in the Middle East, and Dr Makiya in Islamic art and architecture. The library is therefore rich in books on art and design, archaeology, travel, history, literature, and, of course, architecture"--Introduction.
