A very good copy of a scarce pocket-sized grammar issued by the Armenian monestary of St. Lazarus.  Beginning with the first essentials: "Grammar teaches the art of speaking and writing correctly.  Human discourse is formed of letters, syllables and words," and moving on to the Armenian alphabet, parts of speech and so forth, this little book lays out Armenian grammar, explained and translated into English. 

Paschal Aucher was a monk at the Armenian monestary in Venice, and his name is connected with editions of ancient Armenian religious texts as well as an Armenian-English dictionary.  The connection of Lord Byron to the present work is unclear; he predeceased its publication by fifty years.

Nicely printed on paper that has retained its whiteness, some minor foxing notwithstanding.  Armenian typeface used along with Roman letters for the English text.

Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
