Book Cover with Manuscript Fragment Covered by Translucent Parchment

This book is covered with a handwritten manuscript, perhaps from the late medieval period. It has been covered with translucent parchment, with text faintly visible underneath. However, in one section the outer parchment cover has worn away, exposing the writing beneath.
