This Qur’an section is noteworthy for its strong hand and some intricate geometrical roundels used as verse markers. The gold surah headings are closely related to the ones in a copy now in the Khalili Collection dated to the twelfth century (inv.no. QUR124 published in Déroche 1992, pp.168-9). A very similar section in size and style sold recently at Christie’s London, 21 April 2016, lot 63.
