About

An exquisite edition of the Qur'an, from an edition produced in India in the 16th century. This section shows Chapter 18, al-kahf (The Cave) verse 110 to chapter 19, Maryam, verse 31. These pages are known as carpet pages due to rich, ornate abstract patterns whose mix of detail and large-scale effect is similar to that seen on high-quality carpets.

Add. 18497, ff.118v-119
