Summary note
Miniature, octagonal Qurʼān, nearly complete, likely used as an amulet. The leaves were probably numbered when the copy was out of order; then it was rebound in the correct order, causing the foliation to be out of sequence. The first two leaves are missing, the text starts with verse 19 of al-Baqarah (2:19).
