ByJohn Baba

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
John Baba (Aghajan Baba of Seir) edited and published Kitavona, or the Assyrian Chronicle, an Assyrian monthly magazine published in Chicago between 1932 and 1937. In addition to the magazine, twelve other works that he printed have come down to us. This volume contains five items: a volume of poems in memory of Awiqam DeKelaita, a poem by Rabi Sargis Elia of Supurgan, an illustrated Assyrian edition of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, a religious tract by Yosip Abraham and a collection of nationalist poetry entitled Naqusha. 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.
