TATAR PRINTING / KAZAN IMPRINT: تفسير نعمانى [Tafsir Numani]


Small 4°, 380 pp., contemporary black boards and tan linen spine (pp. 36-72 with mispagination (but complete), unbound as originally published, sporadic pages printed too close to the margins with tiny loss of lettering, binding slightly scratched).



The book was published in Tatar language for the first time in 1907 in Orenburg. This is possibly the second printing, recorded in the literature as the 1911 Kazan edition. The third edition was not printed until 1959, when it was published in Helsiniki, Finland.

An example with crude local printing errors and contemporary binding.

We could not find any institutional examples.
