RARE Ladino - French/German dictionary with scientific introduction dealing with phonetics and word-formation by Dr.Samuel Romano (1906-1941), submitted as doctoral dissertation under the philologist Prof.Peter Skok to the University of Zagreb before the author`s untimely death in the Holocaust. This important contribution to the study of the Bosnian dialect of Judezmo (or `il Gidyo`, as this Sephardi Jewish language was affectionately called by its speakers in Bosnia) had remained in manuscript form from 1933 until now, and thus was virtually inaccessible to those interested in the language. Finally available to scholars of Ladino, this photocopy of the original manuscript contains the author`s portrait and a foreword by Professor David M. Bunis of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 290x205mm. XIV+12+322 pages. Softcover. Cover and spine slightly stained/dirty. Cover edges and spine yellowing. Cover corners and fore-edge and spine edges slightly wrinkled. Small stain on English title-page. [SUMMARY]: This important contribution to the study of Judeo-Spanish language in general, and to the Bosnian dialect in particular, is in good condition
