Abstract : To researchers, the study of an old manuscript often consists of the analysis of its content. For those also interested in its materiality it is possible to undertake material analyses without jeopardising the object's integrity by using specific tools, as long as they are properly conceived and mastered. Our research concerns a manuscript of the seventeenth century kept in a private collection: an atypical musḥaf from the Islamic Maghreb, featuring in its margins a peculiar corpus of alternative readings. It contains very little information relative to its production but carries the marks of several interventions. A joint historical and material analysis was undertaken due to the atypical aspect of this work and to answer questions regarding the number of different hands contributing to the editing of the manuscript during the reading process over time. Thanks to this two-fold study, this study allows us to better understand the actual process by which the manuscript was manufactured, to identify which materials were used for this work, and to uncover a part of this manuscript's history.
