¶ On the eve of the Civil War in the USA, Salomo Keyzer (1823-1868; teacher of Mohammedan Law at the Royal Academy in Delft) explicitly presented this publication in his introduction as 'not scientific' and calls it an 'advantage', since it book will thus find its way more easily to a large audience '. One year earlier the al-qoer'ān appeared in Dutch, in Batavia, translated by Mr. L.J.A. Tollens (1820-1874) but Keyzer's alkoran was reprinted five times between 1860 and 1925.
