The script seems to correspond to the Abbasid Style D.I as described by F. Deroche. The note added at the top of the folios states that this Qurʾān was an endowment of the governor of Damascus Amajūr.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'> This item is included in the Library’s 600th anniversary exhibition <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://exhibitions.lib.cam.ac.uk/linesofthought/artifacts/al-qur%CA%BCan/'> <i>Lines of Thought: Discoveries that changed the world</i> </a> which runs until 30 September 2016.</p>
