Baghdad, Iraq: Al-Hikma University, 1962. Hardcover. Presumed First. 108 pp. B/w photo ills. Royal blue cover is lettered on front in English, on rear in Arabic. This is the yearbook for a Jesuit college in Baghdad, with an American majority faculty, so presumably classes were either in English or multi-lingual. Printed on glossy stock, it is clean and tight, a typical yearbook. Editorial contents are in English; advertising at end mixes Arabic and English. Very Good.
