A bit off-topic:

Would any of all you knowledgeable people know how one goes about acquiring
a copy of the classical Ethiopic (Ge'ez) translation of the Bible (primarily
HB/OT)??

As far as I can gather from the web, modern-day translations into Ge'ez have
been done, but what we need is an edition of the traditional text.

J. Oscar Boyd published the Ethiopic "Octateuch" (Genesis-Judges + Ruth) in
1905 and 1909-11, but Amazon is hardly likely to carry that :-)
