This article is a continuation within a research series, which deals with hand written and early printed books, which constitute a Manuscript Collection housed at the Karakalpak Institute of Humanities of the Karakalpak Branch of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan (City of Nukus, Karakalpakstan). The Collection contains several hundred manuscripts, early printed books and lithographs in Arabic, Turkic and Persian languages from 18th to the middle of the 20th cent. This diverse Collection itself is a clear evidence of the development of the book culture in Karalpakistan. An important part of the whole Collection is a recently acquired subcollection of ca 150 items (handwritten, early printed and lithograph books) mostly from the 19th–20th cent., which did belong to Sali Bauatdinov. The sub-collection comprises tafsirs, works on fiqh, Turkic Sufi literature (Sufi Allah Yar) and Persian poetry, Arabic fiction of the 20th century, etc.

Work in progress on this collection, which includes description and attribution of various items was started last year.
