    Description

    [Dictionary]. John Brand and Fr. Paschal Aucher, A Dictionary Armenian and English / Bararan hayeren yew angliakan. Venice: Armenian Academy of S. Lazarus [Mekhitarist Congregation], 1825. Publisher's quarter leather. Rubbing to boards and extremities. Front hinge loose. Very good.
    The note "volume II" on the title page is due to the fact that this was the second volume of a joint endeavor that John Brand, an English gentleman who had learned Armenian at the Mekhitarist Congregation, and Fr. Paschal Aucher, a member of the congregation and both Lord Byron's and his teacher, had taken upon together: the preparation of a two-volume English-Armenian and Armenian-English dictionary (the English-Armenian dictionary was published in 1821). This project was the most complete bilingual dictionary available at the time, which remains useful even two hundred years later.
