- Walters Ms. W.562, Koran
- This illuminated fragment of the Qur'an contains chapter 78 (Sūrat al-nabāʾ) through chapter 114 (Sūrat al-nās). It dates to the ninth century AH / fifteenth CE and was probably produced in Iran. The text is written in a large vocalized muḥaqqaq script in black ink. The chapter headings are inscribed in both the New Abbasid (broken cursive) style and thuluth script. Verse markers are illuminated in gold, and polychrome medallions mark tenth verses. The black goatskin binding, which is attributable to the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE, has a blind-tooled central lobed oval with floral motifs and pastedowns of marbled paper.
