Kurdish Library

As Medya asked it, here are some pictures of the Library in the Kurdish Institute of Paris :





Some 7.000 books on Kurds and Kurdistan, in all languages and alphabets.



One of the oldest Kurdish Grammar (1787), in Italian, made by a Dominican father who stayed many years in Kurdistan, in the 18th century.


The Sherefnameh, or History of Kurdish princes, had been written by Sheref Khan of Bitlis in the 16th century. In 1873-1875, Fran├žois Charmoy, a French scholar, translated it from Persian. It has been published in Saint Petersburg. At the right, it is a Kurdishh-French dictionnary, made by Alexandre Jaba, and published in 1879 in Saint Pertersburg too.



Of course, each new publication enters here, but I am very fond of these old books...



What has happened to all the bloggers that used to post here? I see that you have been posting, thanks for that, but there used to be such diversity.
