This article presents a Mamluk Qurʾān ǧuzʾ copied in Cairo in the late 14th century, newly acquired by the Musée du Louvre. It is an interesting example of manuscript production in this period and well contextualized thanks to its informative colophon. It can be linked with other volumes of the same Qurʾān now in Cairo and Brussels. This manuscript was acquired together with some documents (two letters, a note and a watercolour) revealing information about its circulation in the 19th century and connecting it with the amīr ʿAbd al-Qādir al-Ǧazāʾirī and the French orientalist Léon Roches.
