SHEPARD OF AINTAB by Alice Shepard Riggs. 1st edition.

Very rare missionary account.

Publisher: Interchurch Press, New York. 1920. Binding: Hardcover. This is the original 1920 1st edition. 200 pages, featuring an American missionary who served in central Turkey. This scarce, collectible copy is in good condition. The binding is still reasonably solid. The book shows some soiling and average wear, including corner creases and some small splitting at the ends of the spine. The book includes photo plates. Description: Originally published in 1920, Alice Shepard Riggs's Shepard of Aintab relates the story of Fred Shepard, who spent over thirty years as a medical missionary among Armenians in Aintab prior to 1915. The book was originally written as a Sunday school text to inspire youngsters to Christian service but has proven of much interest elsewhere. It provides an account of a missionary man, who left the United States to help Christian people in Ottoman Turkey.
