Description
Highly Gilt Illuminated Islamic Arabic Manuscript. Gold Illuminated Complete Medium Size KORAN, 303 leaves (606 pages); size: 13 x 23 cm; 15 lines to a page, in clear, elegant and uniform naskhī script, in black ink, on beige paper. The text is vocalized throughout. There are two handsomely illuminated pages in the beginning. All headings of suras are written in red ink, within a strip of gold, decorated with other colors. All verses are separated by gold discs. All pages are ruled in several lines in gold and blue. The divisions of the Koran are marked with beautiful and colorful gilt medallions on the margins. There are tens of such divisions. The recitational marks are indicated in red throughout. The style of calligraphy, the decorations, and the illuminations indicate that it is an Ottoman Turkish Koran. Undated, but, most likely, it was written in the late eighteenth century. Full morocco binding with a flap, in the traditional Islamic bookbinding, with gilt medallion and insets. Minor soiling and edge damp-staining, but sill a lovely Koran, in excellent condition.
