Antique Miniature Book Koran David Bryce Islamic Religious 1900 Pristine A1 Blue:
This is for a tiny little Edwardian miniature Koran prayer book. It has the more unusual blue leathercover embossed in gold decoration. It is a fabulous and very detailed little book and it is in excellent condition for its age. This version was first published by David Bryce around 1900 and was actually issued to Muslim soldiers fighting for the allies in world war one. This is a superb example, the outside of the book is still nice and tightly bound with its vivid gold and blue leather cover. All its gilding is perfectly intact and inside the book is in the same condition with all its pages present and no discolouration or foxing or creased pages. It is a nice original example and it displays beautifully. The book itself measures 25mm (1") by 20mm (0.75") by 10mm (0.3") thick.
