Pp. (iv), xx, 326. With engraved front of Ali Eisami Gazirma. Original blindstamped cloth, spine lettered in gilt, lightly rubbed. Partly with some minor staining to the text. First edition. Koelle (1820-1902) was a German missionary and pioneer scholar of African languages. He resided in Sierra Leone for about four years. His major work "Polyglotta African" (1854) initiated serious study of a large range of African languages by European scholars. The basis of this grammar was dictated to Koelle by his interpreter Ali Eisami Gazirma (Ali of Gazir). Ali was born in the late 1780's in Gazir (province of Borno) and lived for 30 years in Freetown known as William Harding. He was then employed by Koelle to support his linguistic studies. The grammar consists of stories, fables, romances, historical sketches etc. Zaunmüller p. 219. N° de ref. de la librería 100796
