This book contains a scholarly study on an original copy of the Holy Quran attributed to the time of Caliph Othman: the copy known as the “Othman (R.A.) Mushaf [Quran copy]” located in the Topkapı Palace Museum. Altıkulaç, a specialist of Quranic studies, has done a meticulous comparative study and technical analysis of the copy; the Introduction explains the method followed and the findings obtained. With only two pages (23 verses) lacking, “Topkapı Mushaf ” is the closest to the complete text of the Quran.
