This is a beautifully written Quran manuscript originated from South East Asia. The centrepieces design is typical of Java island Indonesia. The cover is made of thin brownish leather and is glued on a hard board. The frontispieces & finishpieces are glued to the inner cover on both sides. first few pages on the beginning and ending of the Quran are missing. I acquired this manuscript from a friend in Indonesia last year.
