Aubaret, M. [Louis Gabriel]
Vocabulaire Français-Annamite et Annamite-Français, précédé d'un traité des particules annamites rédigé par les soins de M. Aubaret lieutenant de vaisseau (.) imprimé par ordre de M. le vice-amiral Charner, commandant en chef des forces navales
Imprimerie de la Mission Catholique, Bangkok, 1861. First edition of the first bilingual Vietnamese dictionary in a western language; 2 volumes in 1, 8vo, pp. [4], xcv, [1], 96, [2]; [2], 157; sectional title-pp. for both parts; contemporary calf-backed, marbled boards, uncut; a very nice copy. In Genebril's introduction to his French-Annamite-French dictionary (Saigon, 1898) he is indebted to Caspar's bilingual dictionary published in 1877, but apparently was unaware of Aubert's work published 15 years before. Louis Gabriel Aubaret (1825-94) commanded the French vessel Prégent on the expedition to Cochinchina in 1860. He was appointed the first French consul at Bangkok. Widely held by the obvious institutions, but uncommon in commerce. Not in Collinson, Vancil, or Zaunmuller. Cordier, Indosinica, 774. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Rulon-Miller Books (ABAA / ILAB) [St. Paul, MN, U.S.A.]
