A miniature Qur'an manuscript. Turkey, early 20th century.
1900. 23 x 28 mm. Original morocco. Arabic manuscript on paper. 131 leaves, complete. 8 lines per page, written in black ink, margins ruled in red, sura headings in red. Illuminated opening page and colophon in colours and gold. - The calligraphy and illumination are rather unsophisticated, as common with miniature Qur'ans, which mainly served apotropaic and mnemonic rather than representative purposes.
