Ancient Manuscript Review 48 : Antique Morocco Quran ( Saadi Dynasty 16-17th century)

This is an old handwritten Quran originally from Morocco of Saadi Dynasty era.It is a complete Quran. It was written in a simple Maghribi calligraphy. This Quran has a colophone on the last leaf however I couldn't read it due to the complexity of this script. The cover was repaired and both interior have beautiful Moroccon motive.
