An 18th century Qajar dynasty Quran (1.vol.) The manuscript was copied in Arabic on medium, textured, tan-coloured paper, large and fine naskh script in black and red inks, with diacritic and vowel points in black, catchwords in wide margins, gold roundels interspersed between verses, each line separated with double red lines, gold roundels with blue outlining and red script in the margins. The two opening pages are intricately illuminated in blue, gold and red ink floral and spiral designs. Contemporary full decorative binding. Generally a very good copy.
