Oldest Surviving "Books"

I am fascinated by ancient manuscripts, so I loved an article entitled “The Oldest Treasures from 12 Great Libraries” published by Atlas Obscura last month: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/oldest-library-books-manuscripts-cuneiform-tablets?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=atlas-page. There are some wonderful photos of illuminated manuscripts, papyrus scrolls, and clay tablets, and information about where you can see them in person.
