This book is the companion volume to the Catalogue of the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project, Volume 1: Codices 1-105, Magic Scrolls 1- 134.
It contains at least one plate for each of the 105 codices described in that volume.
But this is designed to be more than just a plates volume. The editors have selected images from the various manuscripts to tell a host of stories about Ethiopic manuscripts: cases (single and double-slip), covers and coverings (including leather and cloth), the tooling of leather covers, layout of text on the page (with prickings, columns and scored lines), codex binding (including primary binding chain stitches and secondary fixing points with headband and tail band), the marking of content divisions, iconography and illuminations, the dating of manuscripts (with colophons and other references to historical persons as well as through an analysis of the paleography), mirrors and mirror niches in the inside covers of books, forged paintings, musical notation and many others.

‘...the catalogue and the companion volume mark an important step towards the establishing of a better standard of Ethiopic codicology, where quantitative evaluation comes to play a more central role...’ (Alessandro Bausi Aethiopica: International Journal of Ethiopian and Eritrean Studies, 13 (2010))
