Description:This is the first known material to be printed in the North Ambrym language by the missionary Charles Murray in 1886. The book contains the alphabet devised by Murray and example sentences. Then there are catechisms explaining God and Jesus, followed by excerpts of bible verses. Finally there are several hymns translated into North Ambrym. I paid for this book to be digitised by the National Library of Australia. It is also now publically available on their website. The full reference for this work: Murray, Charles. 1886. Buk ce muru mo ni ral ta Ambrim. Tanna : Glasgow Foundry Boys Society's Press, print.
