Query:   My family has a small collection of small, unsual books which I have
inherited. We have a little red book all in leather, the pages too, that
is written in what I've been told could be coptic.

Could you confirm for me if this is coptic and if so... what the subject of
the book might be? You can see pictures of the book and some of the pages
here (click on the images to enlarge):

I don't have a confirmed source of this book but I suspect it was brought
back from Eritrea (Ethiopia) or Lybia by my Italian grandfather during WWII.

Anything you could tell me about this book would be appreciated!
