Title: Miniature Illuminated Qur’an, 1800?
A miniature illuminated Qur’an from the early 19th century, written by hand. This Qur’an is written in black naskh font throughout, with corrections in red, and red roundel verse markers, along with shining gold to the margins. The opening bifolio is a gold and polychrome decoration, though the wear has dulled the brightness.
One volume in 64mo, 261 leaves
On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with very little rubbing or wear to the binding. There is wear to several leaves at the beginning and end, with slight damage, the last leaf having been mounted. There is staining throughout, though mostly affecting the blank margins.
