Ancient Manuscript Review 137 : Antique Etiopia Quran Box Set ( 18th Century CE)


This a wooden box which contains supposedly 30 manuscripts ( 30 juzs) for the complete Quran. The wood is thick and hard however the lid is a replacement.

This is a very rare acquisition because we dont see many Etiopian Quran especially with its box in the market or in international hands. 
Check my other Etiopian Quran manuscripts in box below :
