Assyrian Printing in the USA (1914-1943): Ephraim Abraham: Volume I

ByEphraim Abraham

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Ephraim Abraham of Dizateka became the proprietor of the ‘National Printing Press’ or ‘Assyrian National Press’ in Chicago in 1930 or 1931. Nineteen items survive from this press which appears to have ceased production in the mid 1930’s. This volume contains five items: a hymn book, a collection of historical writings and poems and a fragment of a pamphlet on the origin of the Assyrians by Mirza Dawid Malik and a book on theology and a hymnal by Andrew D. Urshan. This volume is part of a series that aims at preserving Assyrian literature printed in the United States during the era of letterpress. It was inspired by the bibliographic research of J. F. Coakley who has provided the introduction to the volume.
