Description

A commentary in Arabic Language to Marah Al Arwah, printed in Istanbul in 1872, was bound in a contemporary binding, decorated with two types of stenciled papier de tenture (wallpaper).

We could not trace any researches of such book bindings in Istanbul, but the material, used for such purposes was most probably either produces in the city, either imported from France.

We could not find any examples of the book on Worldcat.
