¶ Written in the Ethiopic (Ge'ez) script, a Semitic language that is no longer spoken, but is still used for liturgical and other religious purposes by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The subjects of these "Bibles" are generally always Christian, but actual content varies. Dating Ethiopian manuscripts is very difficult as scribes copied old monastic manuscripts using the same materials as had been used for centuries, and have been as old as the 14th century; this one with original vellum animal skin pages, icons and text, as shown with text, 5 full page detailed color icons depicting intricate and detailed Biblical scenes. Small sized handwritten bible, bound in hand tied leather wrapped boards with the leaves interlaced and bound, as shown. The Bible presents more than 10 cm tall, 8 cm wide and 3 cm thick, a rare find. The leather is in good condition, as shown, and the stamped cross and designs are still very visible. The highlight is the 5 gorgeous hand painted icons in vivid color and detail, as shown.
Written in red/black, as shown, the red indicating sacred words spoken by the savior, intermixed with the aforementioned religious scene icons.

I left you a message about that in the shipment information. Off course you will not have to pay 20 plus 20 euro. This was because it was from 2 seperate auctions, so I did not have a hand in that. Please send me your IBAN in a personal message and I will make a refund.
Sorry for the inconveniance.
