The essays emphasize the advanced courting among the intentions of creditors and the restrictions they encountered--issues of structure, presentation, exhibit and storage--as good as outdoor forces that disrupted their goals, together with pillage and ordinary failures. members comprise: Stephen Bann, Laurence Brockliss, Francois de Capitani, Livia Cardenas, Steven Conn, Anja-Silvia Goeing, Anthony T.

Semantisch ist sorgendes Sammeln dadurch bestimmt, dass davon die interessantesten Geschichten erzählt werden: Sammlungsgegenstand kann am Ende ein irdischer Schatz sein oder einer, den weder Rost noch Motten verzehren. Aber gerade dieser beruht auf einer besonderen Geschichte mit besonderen Erwartungen. Ohne Geschichten gibt es keine Sammlungsgegenstände, denn nur durch Geschichten bekommen sie Sinn. Die Geschichten machen es möglich, das, was man sammelt, zu ‚identifizieren‘. Das gilt auch von Schätzen, die nur im Himmel Bedeutung bekommen.

In the field of literary anthologies I would like to briefly mention two abridgments, so far unstudied, that add further details to the understanding of the mechanisms at work during compilation.

As a rare exception, Amâsî’s introduction to his abridgement contains some information that in addition to analysing the work’s contents helps us to understand arabic encyclopaedias of the pre-modern period 37 the author’s agenda (Amâsî 1863, 2–3).
