The binding, which consists of a four fleur-de-lys emanating from a central quatrefoil, is closely comparable to a binding now in the Chester Beatty Library and attributed to Saudia Arabia, fourtheenth/fifteenth century (Bosch, Carswell and Petherbridge 1981, p.98-99, cat.10).
Another juz’ (XXI) from this very same Qur’an was sold at Christie’s London, 27 April 2017, lot 28, whilst juz' XIX was offered in Sotheby's Paris, 23 October 2014, lot 3. The first page of the latter manuscript gives the name Badr al-Din Hasan Muhammad ibn [?], who may well have commissioned the Qur'an.
