About This Item
1685 QURAN Koran Islam Mohammed Mahomet Du Ryer BANNED Muslim Alcoran
A rare, 17th-century printing of the Quran in French. This highly desirable Islamic text was translated by Andre du Ryer, known for his accuracy in French translations. Du Ryer translated this work out of the Arabic into French; however, it was not well-received by the Catholic Church. In fact, Catholic priest Vincent de Paul prohibited the distribution of this work – the first French Quran to be banned when it was originally published!
