Commentary volume: D. S. Rice. Text: engl. /arab. - This codex is one of the most famous Arabic Quran manuscripts due to the identity of the calligrapher. The manuscript was created at the beginning of the 11th century in Baghdad, where Ibn al-Bawwab is said to have produced about 60 Quranic manuscripts. Due to frequent changes of ownership, however, only this codex has been preserved and thus offers the only opportunity to gain insight into the work of this important calligrapher. How this Quran came to Ireland and into the possession of Chester Beatty, the founder of the library of the same name, is a mystery. For a long time, the value and significance of the manuscript remained unknown until Prof. David Storm Rice clearly identified it. Similarities with manuscripts preserved from the end of the 10th century and the beginning of the 11th century can probably be identified, but the stylistic idiosyncrasy of this Quran is immediately apparent. Ibn al-Baww b (Arabic: ), also known as Ali ibn-Hilal, Abu'l-Hasan, and Ibn al-Sitri (around 975– around 1022) was an Arabic calligrapher and illuminator who lived in Baghdad. He is the figure most associated with the adoption of round script to transcribe the Qur'an.
