This great item:This is a leaf from a large illuminated Safavid Persian Koran, most likely Shiraz, 1553-1554, on paper approximately 12.875" x 8.75". There are fourteen lines of Naskhi script, full vowels and diacritical signs in black ink, gold rondels seperate each verse, gold ruled borders and polychrome marginal devices that are stunning. Verso: fourteen lines of Naskhi script gold rondels seperate each verse and polychrome marginal devices. This is of fine qualtity amd most imposing example of the "Holy Book" from this period. Due to the age of this leaf and few leaves survived; the remaining leaves we consider it to be of fine condition. References: The Nasser D. K.
