I am an undergraduate researcher investigating Western travel in the MiddleEast during the nineteenth century. I am looking for primary sources, particularly: pictures of women, travel journals, and postcards. Would this type of material be in your collection? Furthermore, would this information be digitized, or would it be possible for me to travel there and view them?Thank you for your time.
