Beirut: American Uninversity of Beirut, 1953. Octavo. Item #014067

In two volumes. Text in Lebanese and English. The elusive two volume set with few libraries having volume 2 which was printed in a very small print run. Originally attempted to be printed in one volume but the bindings continued to break consequently it was decided to print a few hundred copies in two separate volumes. Bound in original paper wraps printed in red and blue, a few ink marks in border identifying the more important proverbs in Beirut the early post World War II era. Some corner wear, toning and a bit of wear to spines, damp stain to cover of volume two. A very good set.

Price: $90.00
