Catalogue Note

Another folio from the same Qur'an is in the Nasser D. Khalili collection, and according to François Déroche, its letter forms recall the caracteristics of the D group (Déroche 1992, no.69, p.126). Moreover, he concludes that the Khalili leaf might have originated from MS. 322 in the Institute of Oriental Studies in Leningrad (al-Munajjid 1960, pl.1, and Petrosyan 1995, no. 2, pp.114-115).

A leaf from the same Qur'an was sold in these rooms on 8th October 2008, lot 5; Christie's, London, 15th October 2002, lots 44-52; Sam Fogg, Islamic calligraphy, cat. 7, no. 3, pp. 14-15.
