Religion - Quantity: 1

Object: Manuscript
Number of Books: 1
Subject: Manuscripts, Religion
Book Title: Religious manuscript in Ge'ez, probably XVIII century
Condition: Good
Edition: Other
Language: Other
Original language: Yes
Binding/ Material: Leather

Beautiful specimen of Ethiopian Coptic religious manuscript, of
13.5 x 10.5 cm, probably written in Ge’ez, the ancient Amharic used as the language of the religion until the 19th century.
The manuscript consists of 46 pages (2 cc.b. + 41 + 3 cc.b.) parchment laid on two columns with black and red ink, the binding has leather-covered wooden plates with embossing on the two covers.
The text is divided into two parts, beginning indicated by red friezes on p.3 and p.26.
The original binding is in excellent condition, while the parchment sheets are browned especially at the bottom, where one usually touches a volume for consultation. There are also some modern annotations in pen; the writing is still extremely clear and there are slight losses of text only on the last two pages (see photos).
Prayer book, probably dating around the 18th century.
