(ed. Dr. Tayyar Altıkulaç), I-II.
Dr. Tayyar Altıkulaç, ex-president of Religious Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, meticulously prepared for publication the Qur’an manuscript, attributed to the third Caliph, ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan, at Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum in Istanbul. The facsimile of the manuscript is available in two separate volumes. First volume contains an extensive introduction, in both Turkish and Arabic. The so-called ‘Uthman’s codex (mushaf) is acknowledged as the oldest manuscript copy of the Qur’an in the world. It derives its importance from the fact that ‘Uthman’s original codex henceforth became the official standard copy of the Qur’an.
