9781578989416: The Aryan Origin of the Alphabet

2010 Reprint of 1927 First Edition. Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell (1854 - 1938) was a British explorer, collector in Tibet, and author. He traveled in India throughout the 1890s (including Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet) and wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices he observed there. In his later works he tried to synthesize Western and Near Eastern cultures. In this work he proposes an Aryan (i.e., Indo-European) origin of the alphabet. His point of departure is the presumed Semitic origin of the Alphabet, against which he makes an argument for an actual Aryan origin. Illustrated in the text and with two large plates.

About the Author:

Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell (1854 to 1938) was a Professor of Tibetan, Professor of Chemistry and Pathology, a British army surgeon, and an explorer who travelled widely in India, Nepal and Tibet. He was also a philologist and linguist and one of only a few scholars able to fully translate Sumerian and Sanskrit—a skill for which he won great renown.
