Description

Bible, Old Testament, Book of Esther (Hebrew). One of the most beloved books in the Old Testament, the Book of Esther was copied many times and treasured in Jewish households. Though more than a thousand years old, this scroll is still in remarkable condition and eloquently affirms the durability of the scroll format and the parchment substrate for bookmaking.
