Dear Mrs Ansorge,
I am Maria Luisa Russo, I write from Italy.
I am TIMA member and I am involved in a project concerning the catalogue of a collection of Islamic manuscripts, and I wanted to ask you an information.
The catalogue is on a collection of about 280 manuscripts, and it will be published in English; the description of each manuscript is composed by a textual part and a codicological part, and both have already been written in English. The information I wanted to ask you is if you know someone who would be eventually available to do the English revision: someone English mother tongue and with familiarity with the terminology of codicological descriptions. This information is just preliminary, because this part of the project still has to be defined in detail by the project's responsible; always as preliminary information, we would need, if possible, a general information about the costs of this work.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, best regards
Maria Luisa Russo
