Description
Highly Illuminated Arabic Manuscript Koran. Illuminated Arabic Manuscript. QURAN. 326 leaves (652 pages); size: 9.3 x 15.5 cm; 17 lines to a page; Arabic text is written in clear, handsome, and elegant naskhī script; in black ink; on yellowish paper. The Arabic text is vocalized throughout with recitational markings in orange. There are six beautifully illuminated pages in gold and colors, two in the beginning, two in the middle and two at the end. Beside these illuminations, there are ten pages with border decorations in gold (55b, 56a, 108b, 109a 195b, 196a, 237b, 239a, 276b, 277a). All lines are separated from each other by gold strips. All pages are ruled with several lines of gold and blue. All verses are separated by small rosettes, in gold, red, and blue. All divisions of the Koran are elaborately marked in different medallions in gold and colors on the margins. There are tens of such division markers. Last page bears the date 1160 of the Islamic calendar, corresponding to the year 1747 AD. Full morocco binding, both covers are embossed with an elaborate arabesque design, with central medallion. There are some smudges, but text eligible, otherwise in very good condition. Considering the decorations and the abundant use of the paisley leaves, there is no doubt that it is of Persian origin.
