bag is from Breac Moedoic and dates to 8th or 9th century, rather than a book it actually contains a portable metal shrine so should be called a Cumbach or reliquary . The bag is made from an oblong piece of tanned Leather, probably dyed brown or black, and tooled.  The internal dimensions would originally have been approximately 30 x 25 x 4 cm.
