Islamic Manuscripts : al-Qurʼān

Islamic Manuscripts

Fragments of an Abbasid Qurʼān, probably written in the third century A.H / ninth century C.E., containing verses from the suras: al-Dhārīyāt (سورة الذاريات), al-Ṭūr (سورة الطور), al-Najm (سورة النجم), al-Qamar (سورة القمر), and al-Raḥmān (سورة الرحمن). The manuscript also contains fine examples of early geometrical ornamentation at the front and back. The script seems to correspond to the Abbasid Style D.III as described by F. Deroche.
