Description:

I don't speak or read Armenian, so I relied on help from a variety of sources in creating the listing below. Please forgive any mistakes. I tried to provide enough photographs so you can get a clear picture of the book for yourself. Fr. Arsen Ghazikian, translator. Homer. ILIAKAN. THE ILIAD by HOMER. Translated into ARMENIAN by FR. ARSEN GHAZIKIAN. Published: VENICE - San Lazzaro: MEKHITARIST CONGREGATION, 1911. Softcovers / Wrappers, thick small format book, 4.25x6.75", 835 pages. Condition: The covers and spine covering are held together with five strips of Scotch tape that go from the rear margin of the front cover, across the spine covering, and to the rear margin of the rear cover; the covers are chipped at their corners, split with chips at their spine folds, and are generally worn, but they nonetheless are present with all titling text clear; Internally, the sewn binding is very shaky, with many signatures split at their gutter, but all holding together by the sewn binding threads; the pages are all lightly toned, a few have edge and corner creases and wear, but overall they remain bright, clean, unmarked, and fully legible. The translator of this work, Fr. Arsen Ghazikian (1870-1932), was a member of the Mekhitarist Congregation and a prolific translator of many European epic works and other poetry, as well as an erudite bibliographer. This is the first translation of the Iliad into Modern Armenian and the only one in Western Armenian. A RARE EARLY ARMENIAN MEKHITARISTS TRANSLATION of THE ILIAD. About MEKHITARISTS (from Wikipedia): ******The Mechitarists are a congregation of Benedictine monks of the Armenian Catholic Church founded in 1717 by Abbot Mekhitar of Sebaste. They are best known for their series of scholarly publications of ancient Armenian versions of otherwise lost ancient Greek texts and their research on classical and modern Armenian language.******.
