Ancient Manuscript Review 78 : Antique Indian Quran (18-19th century)






This is another handwritten Quran from Indian region. Texts are written in Naskh script within double red-line & blue-line frame. The first 2 pages are beautifully gold gilded & illuminated. Covers are not original. Very thick manuscript with over 400 follios. It's undated but from the design & illumination I would safely estimate it was written between 18th-19th century.
