$42.00

The Koran is one of the most consequential religious texts ever written. Believed to have been delivered by God to the prophet Muhammad, the Koran holds a tremendous amount of significance for billions of Muslims all over the world. Subsequently, it has shaped religion and society for over 1,400 years. Its divine narrative qualities–a lack of beginning, middle, or end, and its self-referentiality–also make it the greatest work of Arabic literature ever written. This illustrated edition, an English translation, pairs selected surahs together with Valenti Angelo’s decorative frames and illustrations. It is a spectacular version of the Koran, a crucial volume for any Heritage press collector or collector of Korans.

This illustrated edition is in fine condition. In the original decorated cloth boards, near fine with only minor fading to the spine. Text block fine. In the original publisher’s slipcase, near fine with only minor rubbing and bubbling. With the publisher’s original Sandglass pamphlet laid in.

A fine English translation of the Koran, beautifully illustrated.
