14th Century Tibetan Sutra leaves, several books with title pages. 124 leaves plus a small addendum leaf. Together with an early 20th century wooden lacquered upper-board. The lower-board is missing.
13 Leaves are seriously damaged by insects and another 13 leaves have quite a few wormholes. These leaves are written in several manuscripts, hence different styles but all of the same high quality. The laquer layer of the wooden upper board is in a rather poor condition.
The size of the leaves is slightly varying, but most are approximately 9 x 36 cm, that of the wooden board is 10 x 41 cm. These manuscripts possibly originate from the Zapu monastery located near the Tibetan border.
