The American Protestant Mission to the Assyrians (1835-1934) played a significant role in the creation of a literary language based on the spoken language of the Assyrians and the introduction of modern educational institutions among them. The American Mission Press was established in Urmia in 1840 and survived until 1918. This volume contains an annotated and illustrated bibliography of 188 known items that were produced by the missionaries. It also contains reprints of nine short publications including the first hymn book, Syriac and Persian grammars, an Almanac for 1863, calendars for 1868 and 1870, a tract on begging, a family catechism and a brochure for the first Assyrian literary society.
