[Title in Arabic=] Christ in the Wilderness [cover title]

[Beirut?]: n.d. [ca. mid-19th century?]. Approx. 4¼ x 3" (10.5 x 7.5 cm.); original green printed wrappers with a metal-cut border on both wrappers, the front wrapper enclosing the title in Arabic with an ink transliteration above; back wrapper with a small piece missing from the lower gutter margin; waterstained at the bottom margin throughout, occasionally touching the last line or two of text. Geoffrey J. Roper, historian, scholar, past head of the Islamic Bibliography Unit at Cambridge University Library, 1982-2003, and Editor of Index Islamicus and of the World Survey of Islamic Manuscripts, notes: "I have not been able to find any bibliographical record of this booklet, but the type-face is certainly that of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) press in Beirut. These types were supplied to other presses in the area at various times, but in view of the content of this item, it seems most likely to have been printed by the ABCFM." Item #45748
