Early Journal of Nji Mama, speaking in Parables [c 1900]

Leaves: 1; Pages: 2; Measurements: 27.6cm x 21cm; Dates ca. 1900; Script: Akauku Mfemfe; Condition: Poor; Comments: The script variant employed here, which is among the earliest known among the Bamum, along with the expensive parchment paper used, confirm that this is one of the earliest extant specimens of Bamum writing. In this example Nji Mama’s handwriting is still somewhat irregular.
