"This book endeavours to give the English reader some conception of the richness of Somali poetry....We have been at pains also to include in our collection a number of religious poems which illuminate the Muslim basis of Somali life. Unlike the other poems in this collection these are not only orally recorded but are also preserved in Arabic; an Arabic, we may add, which as the Arabist will see contains some local colloquialisms and sometimes words of Somali origin." Includes English translations. Pp.10/167,7 plates illustrating original Arabic texts, owners name to fep. Black cloth,minor sunning to spine. VG.
