Could anyone identify this antique document written in an unknown script (Kashmiri?) and perhaps comment on its purpose? (Pictures inside)

The item is of considerable age. It consists of several hundred loose sheets within two wood covers, and is handwritten. Can anyone identify the script, the function of the object, and any gist as to what it says? Perhaps similar in function to a prayer scroll? Or a family history? Many thanks in advance.
