In this volume, originally part of the series Beiträge zur Volks- und Völkerkunde, the well-known Semitic linguist Mark Lidzbarski (1868-1928) presents annotated German translations of Neo-Aramaic stories, tales, and songs. The notes include references to other versions of these stories, or similar stories, elsewhere. Among the stories is a version of the Ahiqar legend.
