18th-century manuscript (ต้นฉบับ) from northeast Thailand written in Lao (Northern Thai, Tham). Accompanied by a modern printed tag in Thai from the Fine Arts Department certifying permission for the manuscript to leave Thailand. Written in 4 lines per leaf. Unusually foliated with a combination of letters and numerals. Written by a poorly trained scribe, lacking tone marks. Leaves of palm leaf, many damaged, with four holes, two central ones approximately 17.5 cm apart and two at the left and right margins; lacquered edges. Wooden covers with a cord tied through the two center holes; writing in old Lao inside the lower cover. Possibly written in the 1780s.
