About this Item

first edition and printing, vol. 6 of the series 'Languages of the Guianas', published by the Summer Institute of Linguistics, printed book only, no audio tape; from the library of the linguist Glenn Gilbert with Gilbert's pencilled inscription on the title page and book plate laid in, considerable shelfwear, black-tape binding beginning to loosen, plastic label-maker strip, with title, author, and date, affixed vertically along front of binding, interior clean and unmarked, rated Fair; this hard-to-find work would be of interest to collectors of books on pidgin and creole languages, and specifically on Taki-Taki or Sranan Tongo; although its main purpose is to teach the reader to converse in the language using the audio-lingual method, there is also some grammatical information attached to the lessons towards the end; the language is a real eye-opener for the native speaker of English with little or no knowledge of creole languages; soft covers are green with black lettering, the publisher's logo in black on the front; 4to -- 252 millimeters high, vi + 117 numbered pages.

Store Description

Triple G Books is owned and operated by an emeritus professor of linguistics, who was also an ardent book collector over the period 1954 to 2007. Books for sale range from linguistics, pidgin & creole languages, sociolinguistics, anthropology, education, and comparative religion through modern first editions and German and Scandinavian books. A number of the books are valuable and hard to find, as for example a 1/2-leather-bound first edition of Alfred Russell Wallace's The Malay Archipelago (2 vols.), recently sold for presentation to the Mayor of London on his visit to Malaysia, and a first edition of H. G. Wells' The Time Machine, a novel of the 19th century pointing to a scary future, a continuing revelation to me. Triple G Books stands back of its books in every way.
