A scarce first edition of Schon's pioneering work on the Hausa language. Hausa is the Chadic language with the largest number of speakers, spoken as a first language by about 25 million people, and as a second language by about 18 million more, an approximate total of 43 million people. Hausa is one of Africa's largest spoken languages after Arabic, French, English, Portuguese and Swahili. Jacob Friederich Schon [James Frederick] (18031889), missionary and philologist, was born at Ober Weiler, Baden. Ordained deacon in 1831 and priest in 1832, he went to Sierra Leone where he worked for the next fifteen years. In Sierra Leone he began linguistic research, learning Igbo and Hausa from recaptives (freed slaves). The study of the Hausa language was to become his life's work. Condition: In a cloth binding.
