Sammanfattning (abstract):
Re-edition of ten texts in the Kamba language (a major Kenyan Bantu language that is also spoken in Tanzania, e.g. in Kilosa District) that were originally published by missionary Julius Augustiny (of Leipzig Mission) as "Kambamärchen" in the German "Zeitschrift für Eingeborenensprachen" 1924/25, XV:82-116, 213-223; texts were completely revised by Prof. Kioko (United States International University Nairobi) and reproduced in the current Kamba orthography; a parallel Swahili translation of all texts was provided. Foreword by Prof. Dr. Dr. John Mbiti (Prof. emer. University of Bern, Switzerland) who emphasizes the unique value of the text collection that dates back more than 100 years. The Swahili translation makes the Kamba cultural heritage available to all who are competent in this international language in East Africa and beyond.
