Small Quranic Book from Tokyo 1934

published in Tokyo in 1934 by the Tokyo Tatar Community.


Tatar was written using the variant of the Arabic alphabet shown below from the 9th century until 1920 within Tatarstan.

Tatars living in Japan and China continued to used this alphabet long after. We're impressed that they were able to publish so many titles.
