- Walters Ms. W.569, Koran
- This illuminated copy of the Qur'an was produced in the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE in Iran. Apart from using a number of scripts, such as naskh, muḥaqqaq, and tawqīʿ, the manuscript features six pairs of decorated pages; two illuminated headpieces; and chapter headings, interlinear illumination, and marginal decoration. The Qur'anic text begins on fol. 2b and ends on fol. 331a. It is followed by a prayer (duʿāʾ) and a table of divination (taf'ul) in Arabic and Persian (fols. 332b-333a).The black leather binding has a central piece in the form of a diamond with pendants on four sides. The inner boards, with their traditional dentelle decoration, feature text from the "verse of the throne" (āyat al-kursī), 2:255-6, which is inscribed in the outer frame.
