Description

Pocket travel book with French-Arabic language exercises. During his six-year journey, Prince Pückler, who had grown up speaking French, kept a small dictionary in which he assigned important Arab words and sentences to their French equivalents. His notes indicate that he taught his slave Machbuba French and learnt Arabic from her.
