    I am hoping somebody on this site can read Armenian because I bought these books and have no idea how to read it myself. Any help with the titles of the books is appreciated.

      Thanks mustangtony!

      The author of the first one is Arphiar Arphiarean. The only book on the net written by him transliterated into our alphabet is "Karmir zamouc" but I don't think it is your book.
      I have tried to copy and paste an alphabet but it's just not available to me to do a search.
      You might have to contact an Armenian association and mention Arphiarean's name and ask for help.
      I hope this helps you mate.

      Thanks for the help. I tried to research the name you mentioned but could not find much. Is there any way for me to translate the others?

      I'm still researching the idea of getting an alphabet. I just got one into a document five minutes ago.
      In wikipedia there is this reference to the alphabet:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_alphabet

      From there I went to Wiktionary through the letter A:
      http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/?

      At the bottom of the page is the full alphabet which can be copied.

      You copy each letter into a word document.
      Then copy the word in Armenian and search in Google.
      It would take me a couple of hours to do.

      Thanks, I tried that early and it was very time consuming. It was also hard finding the letters. I took your advice and contacted and Armenian society.

      Arpiar Arpiarian (1851-1908) or Arp?iaryan, Arp?iar (1851-1908)
      Armenian author and activist assassinated in Cairo.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arpiar_Arpiarian

      The Arpiarian text is a series of short stories?

      Thanks antiquesareamazing

      I think the third one is "Leran Vogin".
      This means "the spirit of the mountain".
      There is one reference on the net to it as being published in Constantinople in 1920. The author is Sev-vin.
    9. PaperHoarder, 9 years ago
      Thanks again! I tried contacting an Armenian society but they have not responded.
    10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      I'm on track with the second one too. I think the author is T. rgos and the title begins "Sea King" the last word is a bit of a mystery as yet.
    11. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      That should read T. Argos.
    12. PaperHoarder, 9 years ago
      Thanks! I appreciate it.
    13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      Wrong! Argos were the publishers. The author's name is Pernet, Artiwr. Nothing really on him save that he wrote several novels in the twenties. This one was published in Cairo in 1926. A big book at 512 pages?
    14. PaperHoarder, 9 years ago
      Thanks for the additional help. I tried to do more research into the books but I have not found anything, except for a book in the library of congress that has the same name stamp as two of my books.

      You're welcome. I've enjoyed the challenge and have learnt some more about the potential of my iPad over the desktop. I found some ways of typing in Armenian:

      I am glad you are enjoying it! You have been more of a help than the Armenian societies.

      No help yet on the PH?
    18. PaperHoarder, 9 years ago
      I have been able to get more information from an Armenian Society at Harvard.
