Armeno-Turkish Publication

This entry was posted in Turkish/Armenian Publications on .

Abbott books were translated into a number of languages. Often this was to help Christian missionaries. Here is an example.

The Young Christian was published by a Smyrna, Turkey firm in 1844. It is titled:
Tinin tʻēmēlli pōrchlarěněn kēnch kʻristoneayē tʻarifi

The imprint is Kuliēlmos Kṛifitʻin Pasmakhanēsintē tʻap ōlunmushtur, 1844
The book is written in Armeno-Turkish script.

(See this interesting article about the Armeno-Turkish language: http://www.armeniapedia.org/wiki/Armeno-Turkish_Language)

It is 12 mo. and 350 pages. A total of 2000 copies were published.

It was published under the direction of American Missionaries.

A John S. C. Abbott book-Mother at Home was also published by this same missionary group. It was written/published in “modern Armenian” in the same era.

I am unable to translate this book’s publisher name or the actual title.
Here is the title page and a sample page of text.
