[Albom hay nshanagreru : aṛtʻiw 1500-ameaki hay tareru giwtin ew 400-ameaki hay tpagrutʻean / Album on the Armenian Letters on the 1500th Anniversary of the Invention of the Armenian Letters and the 400th Anniversary of the Armenian Printing]

 

A charming ephemeral pamphlet with a series of Armenian letters, composed of portraits and images of monuments and important places from the Armenian history.

 

Oblong 12°, [44 pp.] printed recto only, last sheet blank, original orange wrappers with lettering, stapled (a small cut-out in the lower margin of one of the pages, sporadic light old Armenian annotations in pencil, tiny scratches in the lower part of the title page, wrappers with minor staining and old signature in the upper part, but overall in a good condition).

Description

The pamphlet was published by the Mekhitarist Press in Vienna. The Mekhotarists came to Vienna from their main monastery on the island of San Lazaro in Venice in 1805 through Trieste, where they first settled in 1773. Their vivid printing activity included various publications, including in Slavic and Middle Eastern languages.

We could only trace one example on Worldcat (Columbia University Libraries), all the other appear to be eBooks.
