A Hand written book or document is called manuscript.
This means that never has been printed.
The term manuscript is derived from Latin
'I write', which means 'some thing written withthe hand.'
Each nook and corner of the world has manuscripts wherepeople put their thoughts and experiences in a written form.
A written document, dated back at least to seventy fiveyears, achieves the status of a rare manuscript.
The material used to write manuscripts was onpaper,palm-leaf ,bark ,cloth, metal etc.
These manuscripts contain precious information of textsand treatises on various Indian arts and sciences.
Manuscripts are recovered in various languages andscripts.
For instance, Sanskrit is written in Devanagari script,Tamil, Grantha or in any other Indian language script.
