ARMENIAN DIASPORA: ԲԱՐԻ ՍԱՄԱՐԱՑԻՆ. Iyi samiriyeli adam [Bari samarac'in / The Good Samaritan]
A colouring book in Armenian and Turkish language with a story of a good Samaritan, was illustrated by a Dutch artist Kees de Kort, famous for his biblical illustrations for children and people with learning disabilities.
Author: Cornelis Jacobus (KEES) DE KORT (born 1934), illustrations.
Place and Year: Istanbul: Kitabı Mukaddes Şirketi, [s. d.].
Technique: Square 8°: 18 pp. with black and white illustrations, original coloured card wrappers, stapled, (first three images coloured, probably by a child, minor wear on the corners, minor staining, otherwise in a good condition).
A scarce colouring book with a story of the Good Samaritan with text in Armenian and Turkish, was published by the Bible Company in Istanbul. The book was a part of the world famous series What Bible Tells Us (originally with a Dutch title Wat de bijbel ons vertelt) with illustrations by Kees de Kort (born 1934), which was printed for children and people with learning disabilities.
It is unclear how many volumes were issued in the Istanbul-issued versions of the series.
We could only find one institutional copy (Berlin State Library).
