Description

A rare and unusual book, printed in Armenian language in Alexandria, Egypt, is a translation of the French adventurous orientalist fiction Jalma la Double by Paul d’Ivoi (1856-1915) and was issued one year after a promotion of a popular French movie with the same title.

The book includes 16 images from the movie, which was set in Istanbul in the time of Sultan Murad V, who only reigned from 30 May to 31 August 1876. This today very rare movie was made by a French director Roger Goupillières in 1928. A copy is preserved in the movie archive in Toulouse.

The Armenian version of the book was published in the same year as the French Paris-printed popular edition, accompanied with photographs from the movie, under a title Jalma la double, Roman abondamment illustrpar les photographies du film de la Socitdes cin-romans.

The book is registered in the database of the Armenian libraries (http://haygirk.nla.am) and Worldcat lists only one or two examples (two examples listed by the University of California, Los Angeles).
