Handmade Ethiopian Coptic bible/prayer book with hand coloured icons and other illustrations, bound in an embossed leather binding.

With 4 full page hand painted icons.

¶ 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, 4 full page detailed color icons depicting intricate and detailed Biblical scenes. Small sized handwritten folding bible, bound in hand tied leather wrapped boards with the leaves folded. The Bible presents 7 cm tall, 7 cm wide and 2 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 4 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.
