Manuscript Ibadat
1930. (110)pp. This Islamic devotional text is calligraphed in black and red and accented with blue and burnished gold. Illuminated with a hand-colored calligraphic frontispiece illustration in gold, blue, green, and purple ink. One section of the text opens with a decorative headpiece in green, and another page has a lovely marginal design. Bound in gilt-stamped burgundy morocco, with a flap that closes around the book. In an embroidered green velvet case. The edges of the case are decorated with embroidery in lighter green and metallic thread, and the top flap bears an embroidered design over leather in the same metallic thread. The case closes with an embroidered toggle clasp. The bottom of the case has a loop which would presumably allow the case to be attached to a belt. Slight chipping to spine ends, some rubbing to covers and velvet case, else about fine. (2 7/8 by 2 7/8; 73x73mm). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
