Author(s): MENGOZZI, A.

In 1923 the British Museum purchased eight manuscripts from Eduard Sachau (1845-1930), now registered as nos. 9321-9328 of the Oriental and India Office collection. Together with the better-known Berlin Sachau collection, they bear witness to Sachau's interest in Neo-Aramaic and Arabic folk poetry, and they constitute the most important Western source for our knowledge of Neo-Aramaic literature.
