I acquired this Quran from a friend in Istanbul. This Quran was originally from Syria, however the family who owned this Quran migrated to Turkey and brought this Quran along. This is a huge Quran with beautiful handwritten calligraphy. Normally we see in Ottoman Quran that Muhaqqaq script is written for titles & subtitles; Naskh normally is the main script used for the entire text. However in this case, Muhaqqaq is used all through out.
Texts are written within double red-line frame with beautiful ornaments in margin. The first 2 pages are beautifully gold gilded & illuminated. Covers seem original. Very thick manuscript with over 800 follios.
