SYNOPSIS OF A GRAMMAR OF THE KAREN LANGUAGE, EMBRACING BOTH DIALECTS, SGAU AND PGHO, OR SHO
by Mason, Francis
Tavoy: Karen Mission Press, 1846. viii,-297,[299*]-314*,300-345,-458pp. Quarto. Original cloth, neatly rebacked in calf. 19th- century library bookplate and some ink stamps. Minor foxing to titlepage, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. Scarce Karen-language grammar, the first of its kind. The author notes that this work is far from complete, but will surely be expanded and superceded in a year or two, due to the work of the mission in the area. It is inscribed on the flyleaf by the printer, Cephas Bennett: "Society of Inquiry, Newton Theological Society, Mass. / From C. Bennett, Tavoy." Cephas Bennett was an American missionary stationed in Myanmar (then Burma), who also served as the region's printer. Only a handful of copies in OCLC.
