Late 19th century black half-calf with marbled boards and endpapers, spine decently gilt.. The first grammar of Mandju, bound with the first comprehensive vocabulary of the language since Amyot. The rare grammar was published as an independant work, the vocabulary as vol. III/2 of the proceedings of the ,Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft'. Vol. III/1 had been the Mandju version of three Chinese classics and is not bound in here. According to an ownership inscription on front fly-leaf, the two corresponding works were combined by Emmanuel Tronquois (1855-1918), a pioneer of Japanese art history. Gabelentz (the elder,1807-74) was one of the most ingenious linguists of his time, besides Mandju he studied Mongolian, Calmuc, Finnish, the languages of North American Indians and of South Pacific tribes. - Cordier, Sinica, col. 2756; Lust, no. 1072 (the grammar); not in Löwendahl. - Binding a bit rubbed. Foxing to the grammar (stronger at both ends), a pencil exercise of Mandju characters on p. 3/4. A waterstain to upper blank margin at end of the vocabulary. A very good copy.
