The first page is decorated with red and gold. Contains all of the verses but the last pages are missing.

No author, no date of origin. It is estimated to have been written in the early 19th century considering the style of decoration, cover and writing style.

Cover is embossed leather bearing the star of David. In the Islamic literature this star is called the Prophet Solomon's Seal.

Condition is fair. Not good, not bad. Only the first pages are getting loose from the cover. No holes.

Size: 18 cm x 14 cm.

Totally estimated 650-700 pages.
