As New. Card covers, 152pp, 88 b&w captioned photos, This book was published in conjunction with "Images from Bamum: German Colonial Photography at the Court of King Njoya, Cameroon, West Africa, 1902-15", organized by the National Museum of African Art in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, June 15-Sept 6, 1988. King Nyoya is known to linguists for his Bamum scripts, an evolutionary series of six scripts he created for the Bamum language at the turn of the 19th century. They are notable for evolving from a pictographic system to a partially alphabetic syllabic script in the space of 14 years, from 1896 to 1910. Bamum type was cast in 1918, but the script fell into disuse around 1931. A project began around 2007 to revive the Bamum script. As New. CB50.
