Almost Complete Thai Manuscript
Illuminated Thai Manuscript for the Monastery.
Manuscripts of this significance are rarely ever available for sale.
This Thai illuminated manuscript has 11 pages of illustrations in ink and pigment. These texts were used in monasteries for religious rites and as teaching materials. The first two pages are written in gold leaf overlay over a black background.
Estimated to be late 19th Century.
Each page is 25 x 5 inches.
The condition is as expected of its age. Minor losses all over.
The illustrations are faded in many places.
The back cover of the manuscript is missing - thus denying it the title of "complete"manuscript.
