L'Alcoran, translaté d'arabe en Français par le sieur du Ryer, sieur de la Garde Malezair

by QURAN

Condition: Near Fine


1672 QURAN Koran Islam Mohammed Mahomet Elzevier French Du Ryer BANNED Muslim

"Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever has not kindness has not faith."

Muhammad, the Prophet

A rare, 17th-century printing of the Quran in French. This highly desirable Islamic text was published by the famed Daniel Elzevier, though the imprint states Sommaville. Andre 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!
