Description

Original printed wrappers, xii+257+[iii]pp. Probsthain catalogue to rear. Spine chipped top and tail, age discolouration to upper cover, fore-edges darkened, sewing a little adrift in centre. However, this is a tight copy otherwise, clean throughout and a good example of this classic work. Collectable; Good "this work represents both in quality and in quantity a very great advance on anything which had been published before in English... no attempt had.. been made before to distinguish between these two dialects... it is a much more scholarly work than Willmore's excellent book on the spoken Arabic of Egypt."
