We are offering here a magnificent antique Indonesian Prayer Book. This one is made of palm leaves with verses written on both sides of each one. There are 17 pages with the first one on each end being blank, and they are held together with two rounded wooden ends. The have a cord with an old coin strung through the middle, which wraps around it to hold it closed. The closest item I could to compare it with, would be the Buddhist "Kammavaca", which uses a different type of script. Could be either Buddhist or Hindu and probably from Burma or Indonesia. It is a magnificent old Prayer Book for the serious collector.
