Description

This elegant program for a Muslim music evening was printed on silk in Russian with Cyrillic letters and Tatar language in Perso-Arabic letters for a musical evening, in 1909 in Baku, Azerbejdzan.

The evening was organized by Neshr Maarif, an society of mostly upper class educated Azeris, which specialized in the education and enlightenment of local Muslim. The organization was based in Shusha and was responsible for founding several institutions, including the first Russian-Azerbaijani Shusha school for girls.

Such ephemeral programs are exceedingly rare and we could not find any other examples.
