A small format Quran, printed on thin pink paper and bound in a charming binding was issued in a central Crimean city Bakhchysarai under the patronage of Ismail Gaspirali (اسميل غصپرينسكى also Gaspirinsky) (1851-1914).
Gaspirali was one of the pioneers of the modern education among the Muslims in the Russian Empire. He encouragedthe solidarity among the Turkic peoples and encouraged modernization through Europeanization. In 1883, he founded the first Tatar newspaper in Bakhchysarai, named Tercüman. Our Quran was published by the same publishing house.
