PAST COLLECTION ITEM
Antique Ethiopian Koran manuscript hand written in Arabic
This is an old Ethiopian Arabic handwritten Koran manuscript. I was told that this item was collected from a person in the Harari region where the majority of Ethiopia’s Islamic people live. The person said he thinks it is probably 200 years old. The dimensions of the pages are about 10” long and 7” wide. There are about 85-90 leaves in total - so more than 170 hand written pages. The paper seems of a different nature. There have straight marks. I think these are hand made paper.
