Precious version of the 1st English translation of holy Quran

 According to the public relations department of Malek National Library and Museum, the precious version was donated by one of the museum's visitors from the UK, Eugene Schulman. The work was released in 1734 by C. Ackers in London.

Years ago the book's 508-page Arabic version was converted into English by George Sale.

Besides its English translation the book holds other traits which makes it a significant historical work; a genealogy of Quraysh (tribe), Qahtanians, a map of Saudi Arabia, the history of Muslim Arabs and their customs during the ignorance period and pictures of "House of God"( Kaaba).

Currently the precious work is kept at the Malek Library located at Imam Khomeini Ave.
