Product description

"The Code of Leke Dukagjini" translated from the Albanian by Leonard Fox.

Hardback with glossy red dust jacket. Title and vignette (showing detail from the Coat of Arms of Leke Dukagjini) on the front cover of dj in black. Red cloth boards with title and vignette in gold gilt.

Minimal shelf wear.

"Translated orally for generations, the laws of the Kanun served for more than five centuries as the foundation of social behavior and self-government for the clans of Northern Albania, even while the region was nominally under Turkish rule. The importance of the Kanun in the history of the Albanian people can scarcely be overestimated, and its precepts continue to exercise a very significant influence on Albanians living in Albania and Kosove, as well as in other countries to which Albanians have emigrated.

Collected and arranged by Father Shtjefen Gjecov during the first quarter of the twentieth century, this new edition of the Kanun presents the Albanian text along with a parallel translation by Leonard Fox".

A fascinating insight into Albanian culture with sections on marriage, work, the law regarding crimes, the church etc.

Internally clean and unmarked.
