Item Description: Burma, 1880. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Burmese Kammavaca Buddhist manuscript. This kammavaca Buddhist manuscript consists of 2 covers and 16 leaves, making it most likely a complete text. Kammavaca texts typically contain religious instructions for monks. These were normally presented to novice monks, being commissioned by lay people, gaining merit in the process. The outer leaves are fashioned from lacquered wood to provide a rigid finish. The leaves are also extensively lacquered and decorated with gold and most likely to be based around palm leaves (although the material base can vary). This beautiful example is highly decorated and the leaves carry 6 lines of Pali script as well as Burmese numbering. The small hole in each leave was so they could be placed over a bamboo skewer when being read. Kammacava in this condition, and as a complete set, are increasingly rare as they often split into individual leaves for display purposes. Dimensions: Each cover/leaf approx 53cm long x 12cm wide. Date: circa 1880-1930. For similar examples see “Burma and the Art of Lacquer”, by Isaacs and Burton, River Books, 2000, plates 10 and 172. More photographs on reguest.

Item Description: 1850, 1850. Palm leaf. Complete with 16 leaves (13 cm x 59 cm) of text in Pali, written in Burmese "square" script. The leaves consist of cloth, the fabric of discarded monk's robes, which has been lacquered to provide a rigid surface. (Copper is also used and more rarely ivory). The lacquered surface is gilded and the design is painted in red lacquer and finally the script applied in black laquer. Within wooden covers, similarly gilded and decorated, bevelled edges. A beautiful copy.The Kammavaca is a collection of extracts from the Pali Vinaya, the monastic code of discipline, outlining rituals and observances of the Buddhistic order. It was customary for a Burmese family to commission a copy of the Kammavaca on the occasion of their son entering the monkhood. This kind of manuscript was produced at Mandalay in the latter half of the 19th century. John Guy, "Palm-leaf and Paper. Illustrated Manuscripts of India and Southeast Asia", no. 37. p.61.

Item Description: 19th century], [Burma. 16 leaves (4 7/8 x 21 inches), each lacquered in red with elaborate overall decoration in gilt, 14 leaves with lines of black/dark brown lacquer text in square script (known as 'magyi-zi) recto and verso, two leaves with text on one side only, the other with an overall decoration in gilt. Unbound as issued between a pair of red lacquered teak boards, gilt decoration on outer surfaces, inlaid with glass mosaic decoration, Housed within a modern dark red morocco backed box. A fine 19th-century Burmese Kammavaca. The Kammavaca is a Pali term describing verses from the Tipitaka that relate to rituals of monastic life and ordination. It is considered to be one of the most sacred of Burmese religious texts often commissioned by lay-people as works of merit when a son entered a Buddhist monastery. "Kammavaca are volumes of one, five, or nine extracts from the Theravadin Vinaya, each relating to specific ceremonies associated with monks. Noel F. Singer writes that the earliest kammavaca consisted of folios made of plain palm leaves, each of which had four lines of square-inked script on a gold or silver background." ("Kammavaca Texts: Their Covers and Binding Ribbons," Arts of Asia, 23, May-June 1993). "In the 17th century, folios began to be made of pieces of cloth coated with lacquer and painted with cinnabar, and the square letters were written in thick, black lacquer. On rare occasions, folios were of ivory. Designs in gilt, which had been reserved for the ends of folios, end papers, and wooden coverboards, now began to appear between the lines of text. By the end of the 19th century, the lines of script on the folio increased to six or seven and sheets of brass or copper were introduced as folios" (John Falconer, and others, Myanmar Style Art, Architecture and Design of Burma, Hong Kong, 1998, p. 177).

Kammavaca (kammavaca in Pali) consist of nine Khandakas from the Pali Vinaya Pitaka, each of which relates to a specific ceremony associated with monks of the Theravada school of Buddhism. "Kammavaca are volumes of one, five, or nine extracts from the Theravadin Vinaya, each relating to specific ceremonies associated with monks. Noel F. Singer writes that the earliest kammavaca consisted of folios made of plain palm leaves, each of which had four lines of square-inked script on a gold or silver background."

Each leaf is numbered in Burmese script. The leaves of this example have been fabricated from saffron-coloured textile - most probably the old robes of a venerated monk as was the practice - and then lacquered and cut into shape.
