The Unofficial San Francisco Public Library Tatar Department is pleased to announce a new title for our shelves, published in 1933 in Tokyo. Godzilla destroyed most of the Tatar Library in Tokyo , but these few volumes remain. This is the first of two volumes. These books are literally piles of paper, and now preserved forever.
These are the books that I was talking about wallpapering my home with, the writing being so beautiful, and what's even better are the beautiful Tatar words hidden under this script. Many Americans think that if are reading Arabic letters, that you speak and understand the Arabic Language. They are often surprised to learn that Tatar was written in Arabic script.
The only places that I saw Arabic script in Kazan were at the cemetery, Tukay Museum, and of course at Bolghar.
Several of these books are religious in nature. I'm posting them for linguistic study.
