Book Description:

This volume on Qur'ans produced in the period after 1600 is published in two parts, each containing entries on some 75 exceptionally fine examples. Part One includes Ottoman, Iranian, and Indian Qur'ans of the 17th and 18th centuries, including material from China, North and East Africa. Part Two covers the 19th century in Iran and the Ottoman Empire. The book demonstrates the strength and brilliance of Islamic culture during a period that is, all too often, characterized as one of decline and decay.
