About this Item: Turkey, dated 1248 AH (1832/33)., 1832. An enchanting miniature Qur'an in an unusual découpe leaf-shaped style with jagged edges on dark green paper. While the Tuba tree is not actually mentioned in the Qur'an, it is commonly believed to be that which grows in Janna, the Islamic understanding of Paradise, and its leaves stand behind the shape of the delicate 'leaves' in this unusual codex. The use of silver and the presentation of the entire Qur'an in two tiny columns which mimic the veins of a real leaf, point to the quality of this manuscript and the wealth of the patron who commissioned it. - Only two comparable Qurans have appeared on the open market in the last few years: both at Sotheby's, 19 October 1994, lot 57, and 24 April 1996, lot 18.
