Norah Titley: Tributes and Memories

Norah M. Titley Memorial Lecture
Dr Barbara Brend and Mr Jerry Losty

This lecture commemorates the life and achievements of Norah Titley, the noted Islamic art historian who died on the 21st March 2010 at the age of 89. She was known, in particular, for her work on the Persian, Turkish and Mughal manuscripts in the British Museum, later the British Library. Her major contribution to the field was the publication of detailed catalogues and subject indexes of the manuscripts which remain a fundamental tool for scholars working on these collections. Miniatures from Persian Manuscripts: Catalogue and Subject Index of Paintings from Persia, India and Turkey was published in 1977, and the catalogue and subject index for the Turkish manuscripts in 1982.
