The article treats two Qurān manuscripts that are kept in the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur. The two case studies which they present treat two Qur’an manuscripts, both of which can be attributed to the East coast of peninsular Malaysia. The authors’ examination uses various levels of analyses, including the polarizing light microscopy (PLM) and scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX).
