THE MUSLIM WORLD:
Part 1: Including The Searight Collection of Drawings and Prints and Material from The Drawings, Prints
and Drawings Department and The National Art Library at the Victoria and Albert Museum
Introduction to the Microfiche
The paintings and drawings have been arranged on the microfiche in the same order as the catalogue compiled by the Victoria and Albert Museum, that is, firstly alphabetically by artist and then by Searight Collection number.
This printed catalogue contains a listing of the Searight Drawing (SD) numbers with the appropriate fiche/frame reference to the microfiche. Both the Searight numbers and the fiche/frame references run in numerical order alphabetically, thus enabling the user to retrieve information, either starting with the artist information or from browsing through the fiche.
At the end of the microfiche will be found on COMfiche the full Catalogue of the Searight Collection, giving complete details of all objects. These entries can be related to the microfiche through the Searight number in the printed catalogue.
As a final aid to retrieval, the header strip on each fiche has details of the contents of the first and last frame on that fiche.
