An album (muraqqaʿ) of calligraphy in the form of an accordion book put together by an anonymous collector, probably in the 12th century AH/ 18th CE. It consists of leaves bearing fragmentary passages from the Qur’an (Sūrat al-baqarah, 2:65-68 and Sūrat al-nisāʾ, 4:103-106), some sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, and two sheets of pen exercises (ḳaralama). Folio 5a bears the name of the celebrated Ottoman calligrapher Şeyh Hamdullah (Ḥamd Allāh al-Amāsī, d. 926 AH /1520 CE). This calligraphic page with verses from Sūrat al-baqarah, 2:65-68, is framed by an outer border of beautiful marbled paper. It belongs to an album of Ottoman calligraphy associated with Şeyh Hamdullah (d. 926 AH / 1520 CE) that was probably compiled in the 12th century AH/ 18th CE.
