In this early reading book for Aramaic (that is, not Syriac), J.J. Marcel provides a few texts (unvocalized) together with an Aramaic-Latin glossary. The included texts are: the sign of the cross, the Lord’s Prayer, Psalm 1 (from the Psalms Targum), and the first chapter of Genesis (from Targum Onqelos). All the texts except Genesis 1 are also transliterated in Latin characters. This reprint of so early a work will especially be of interest to those concerned with the history of Semitic language study in Europe.
