Joseph de Guignes (1721-1800) was a renowned French orientalist who succeeded …tienne Fourmont at the BibliothŤque royale in Paris.

HUNTER, GEORGE W.:
Examples of the Various Turki Dialects. Turki Text with English Translation. Four parts in one volume. [Sianking, China Inland Mission, 1918].
. Small 4to. Pp. Title + pp. preface (ii) + pp. (i), 70; (i), 19; (i), 23; 8. With text on one side only, as issued sewn in Chinese fashion, in original wrappers. The general title is written in manuscript on recto of first blank leaf as issued. Damp stained throughout. A wormhole to back cover and last blank leaf. Comprises four parts: i. Qazaq Turki Text with English translation. ii. Tartar Turki Text with English translation. iii. Uz Bek Turki Text with English translation. iv. An Example of Stanbul Turkish [Head title]. George Hunter was one of the last great pioneer missionaries. He got to know Turkestan as no other Westerner at that time. He translated the Scriptures into dialects of remote tribes. We believe this work was only issued in a small number. "The coarse paper was made from local material, often from leaves of the desert iris, and the format was the usual style of Chinese book, with each sheet written on one side only and folded back to back ... George Hunter had succeeded in buying a second- or third- hand duplicating machine, and a skilled writer transcribed the Turki text on the waxed stencil sheet while Hunter wrote out the English translation below." (Cable & French, George Hunter, Apostle of Turkestan (1948) pp. 58-9). Cordier BS 4272.

ZWICK, HEINRICH AUGUST & SCHILL, JOHANN GOTTFRIED:
Calmuc Tartary; or a Journey from Sarepta to Several Calmuc Hordes or the Astracan Government: from May 26 to August 21, 1823. Undertaken, on Behalf of the Russian Bible Society. London, Holdsworth and Ball, 1831.
. Pp. iv, 262. Modern paper covered boards. Ex. library copy ("withdrawn from Yale Univ. Library"). Rare English edition translated from the original German "Reise von Sarepta" published in Leipzig in 1827. Helmut August Zwick and Johann Gottfried Schill, Moravian missionaries and ethnologists, spent many years at the Herrnhut mission station of Sarepta (in lower Volga) among the Kalmuc tribes. "The Petersburgh Bible Society, at the time zealosly active, had sent to the Brethren at Sarepta, in the year 1822, a considerable number of copies of the Calmuc Gospel of Matthew, and other small Christian tracts, with a commission to get them distributed by Brethren sent out for the purpose. This was the origin of the journey, on behalf of the Petersburgh Bible Society, of which the account is now presented to the reader" (Introduction). Cat. Russica 692. Already in 1765 ( initiated by Catherine II) the Moravian missionaries built a new community at Sarepta in the middle of Kalmuc tribes. These people called Kalmucs or Oirat had moved from Eastern Turkestan (Xinjian, China) and settled down in the lower Volga region about 1628.
