Chinguetti, Adrar Region, Mauritania

Mohamed Ould Ghoulan, under the watchful gaze of Abdoullah Ould Ghoulan, looks through an ancient manuscript at the Habot Library. They bear the task of protecting this important collection of 1,400 manuscripts. The library was founded in the 19th century when its founder acquired or copied many of the books in the city, subsequently enriched after a trip to Mecca from where he brought numerous volumes in eastern Arabic script.
