Description: Up for sale is a beautiful and RARE COMPLETE Q'uran (Koran Quran) copied by. Mustafa al-Zarifi in 1258 (Islamic calendar) or 1842 Western. Absolutely stunning illuminated opening spread. There are 302 sheets with writing on both sides. I believe each side are folios as I have heard them called.
That would mean 600+ folios. If I have this wrong someone please let me know. The binding on this is original albeit needs some attention from what looks like old water damage and the flap does not close all the way without pressure. The back 19 or so pages have some edge staining and the back two pages are loose.
I admit to not knowing much about this so please ask any and all questions. I can tell you that when I was counting the pages it amazed me how tight the binding was for a book so old.
It seems like it has rarely been opened at all. I did find interesting that in the same year. Abbasid Caliphate was killed with the invasion of Baghdad by the Mongol Army. Dimensions: 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/4. Check out my other items!Be sure to add me to your favorites list!
