Folio (approx. 33.5 x 25.5 cm / 13¼" x 10"), 155 leaves (first and last blank, and the last one loose) on parchment; text in triple column, in black and red ink, 7 full-page vibrantly colored miniatures; contemporary full crimson goat sewn over boards, with 6 nested panels tooled in blind on each cover with a blind coptic design central; approx. 20 leaves with natural flaws and/or with native repair; the penultimate leaf with two tears enterining into the text from the foremargin (no loss of text); an unusually large Ethiopic manuscript, contained in a coarse leather pouch, flaps opening at the top. Condition overall is very good and the text and illustrations clean throughout. Thanks to Eyob Derillo in the Asian and African Studies Department at the British Library for his help in dating and deciphering the text.
