The noun manuscript evolved from the Latin manu scriptus, meaning “written by hand.” Manu is “hand” and scriptus is “to write." It refers to old documents actually written by hand before books were made, but it can also refer to a writer's unpublished work whether it's handwritten or typed.

There are several ways of finding out about the past. One is to search for and read books that were written long ago. These are called manuscripts, because they were written by hand (this comes from the Latin word 'manu', meaning hand). These were usually written on palm leaf, or on the prepared bark of a tree known as birch, which grows in the Himalayas. So, the answer is D.

So let me tell you this that is it correct books written by hands. ya, it's correct how see pen, pencil are can't write itself. There is something need to do this. and when talk about our hands. if you read science textbook in our classes 6 to 10, what is over there is that our whole body our connected to our brain. so hands also connect to this so when we give message to brain I wanted to write this word or to pick up this thing so what will brain do. Brain will decode the message and accept and through encoding the message will give to hands and as this proccess do our hands working for particular that's work. so the whole is just like that so that's all about how it's works and ya it's true books written by hands.
