Ethiopic manuscripts at Princeton

NEWS YOU CAN USE: Ethiopic Manuscripts in the Princeton University Library (Don Skemer).
The Princeton University Library is fortunate to have one of the largest collections of Ethiopic manuscripts outside Ethiopia, including nearly 180 codices and more than 500 magic scrolls, as they are called.
One of them is a manuscript of 1 Enoch used by R. H. Charles in his 1893 edition.
