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.
