The binding on this hymnal is a fine example of traditional Armenian
bookbinding techniques that were still being used in 17th-century
Crimea, including a loop board attachment, cloth doublures, traditional
endbands, blind-tooled leather fore-edge flaps, and a vertically ruled spine.
What is particularly notable is that the illuminator and scribe, Nikoghayos,
also bound the book. The text is an abbreviated version of the Armenian Hymnal
(Sharaknots), with decorated headpieces at the major divisions of the book.
