Teny Soa (The Good Word). 14 volumes. Tananarive, London Missionary Society, 1870, 1876-1879, 1880-1887 & 1900.
Fourteen volumes of Teny Soa, a religious journal in Madagascar, published by the London Missionary Society as from 1866. Text in romanized Malagasy throughout. Bound in original blindstamped cloth (8 vols), contemporary calf, half calf and cloth, of which some are rubbed. The major part of the Malagasy literary heritage was oral and because of the colonialism the emergence of Malagasy literature had been inhibited. In 1818 the London Missionary Society initiated their business on the island and the first printing office was started in 1827. Literary Malagasy evolved in the second half of the 19th century. The first journal to appear was Teny Soa which published works by prose writers and poets.
