Description

This is a Rare hand written manuscript leaf from a Koran, Sultanate India, 1616 AD, on paper (290 x 200 mm. or approximately 11.5 x 7.875 inches). This fine quality leaf, consisting of nine lines of text and Sura Heading; is from a Koran and was scribed by Abdullah at-Khadim with wonderful medallions. The verso is just a spectacular. The format is typical of a Sultanate Indian Koran of a much earlier period; there are indeed similar examples from the 15th century. The scribe is well known for a very fine hand.
