The Khalili Collection is the greatest collection of Islamic art in private hands; it is continuing to grow and improve. It contains a large and comprehensive range of Qur'anic material, covering the entire history of Qur'an production from the seventh to the twentieth century, including examples from centres as far apart as Spain and India. This is the third of four volumes cataloguing the Qur'ans in the Khalili Collection. It includes fifteenth century Qur'ans in Iran, Egypt, Syria, Constantinople, and India; sixteenth century Qur'ans in Iran and India. The lavish presentation of this catalogue is combined with detailed scholarship that not only encompasses the history of the subject, but also presents in accompanying essays new findings that have been made in the course of cataloguing. The text is supported by notes, up-to-date bibliography, and index, while inscriptions are reproduced in their original languages, with English translations. Dr James is an internationally renowned authority on Arab and Persian manuscripts, and on Qur'ans in particular. This book is intended for art historians, Islamicists, collectors and curators of Islamic art.
