An uncommon collection of Armenian poetry, accompanied with modern illustrations, was written in 1979 in Beirut, Lebanon, by ՅարութիւնՊէրպէրեան (Harutiun Berberyan), born in Aleppo, Syria, in 1951.
The work was printed by Hamazkayin, the Armenian Educational and Cultural Society, which origins in Beirut, Lebanon, go back to 1931. In the year 1979, when the book was issued, the press was facing great difficulties during the Lebanese Civil War and the division of Beirut into Eastern and Western sides and had to move in 1988 and 1989. Today the Hamazkayin Press is still the center of Armenian society in Beirut and has connections with Armenian minorities worldwide.
The book comes from a library of an Armenian author and researcher Levon Mikirtitchian (Lewon Mkrtchʻean), active in Munich in the second half of the 20th century.
